I'm getting one exactly the same so pls. help (nt)

: Hi everyone,

: I have a question regarding my cal. 321 Speedmaster Pro...


: (it's the one on the left)

: It has the case and movement of a 1964 Speedmaster, but the
: Professional designation on the dial dates from 1966, at
: which point the case switched over to the style (crown
: guards, shouldered lugs) that we know today. The dial has
: the silver applied Omega symbol, which was only on the
: Professional dial for a short time.

: The crystal is signed Omega, but is flat, unlike the domed
: acrylic piece on the current Speedmaster Pro.

: I checked it in the new Speedmaster book with Mike Gacki at
: Kenjo, and it seems to be "the missing link"
: between the 1964 and 1966 Speedmasters.

: Is this a hybrid piece, with Omega putting a new
: "Professional" dial on the last of the old
: movements and cases, or is it more likely that the dial and
: crystal were replaced later?

: Any thoughts would be appreciated.

: Best regards,

: Jim
