    I'm absolutely no expert on those but yes, the dial looks new and the housing looks adrift slightly. Expensive too..

    Is the dial the right colours etc?

    Original ones are for sure; and like anything else, it's driven by demand. Fake patina is very big business and speedos are one of the most difficult bits to fake. Some internet and FB pages have an almost CSI forensic attitude to anyone who puts up speedos for sale, loads of self-appointed "experts". I sometimes suspect that said "experts" are also the same people who have stashes of OEM bits, their way of controlling the market.
    Much less involved.....

    Smells. In fact, stinks to high heaven.
    Aside from the obscenity of the price that is.

    When in danger or in doubt, run in circles scream and shout!

    A common mistake made when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
