Service Dial 105.003 on Ebay

There is a day left to run as I write and it stands at $4400.

It is being sold as serviced.

We can see immediately it has service hands, dial, bezel and pushers. Albeit this appears to be an older service, when tritium was still issued.

As a 105.003 it should have the long indices dial. Here we can see the AML, the T markings but the hour plots stop short of the minute track, like the later 861 dials.

Always interesting to see, but I doubt it would be a good place to spend a lot. Some service dials can be very nice, though in this one the plots have gone green. Now from a collectors point of view it is interesting because it is a T marked, AML service dial, and these are quite rare. Just not valued.

This one has other problems. The bezel is new, and the pushers dont look right. It is being sold as serviced, but if I bought it I would send it straight off to service by a workshop with access to parts.

The hands are possibly replaced, and because the square ended chrono hand is fitted my theory would be that the watch was serviced, possibly by Omega, at a time when Tritium service dials were avaialable, so perhaps mid 1970’s. (I am guessing).

Case looks a bit shiny too, with some strange engravings on lugs. Unless they turn out to be some famous prevoious owner, it also detracts from the value.
