    321 Speedmaster Built Up From Service Parts

    Here is a watch I acquired some years ago from Watchco, built by them from "NOS" parts.
    On the left is an original 145.012 for comparison. More on service parts here:

    That's cool to see them side by side - I'd still take either one, but see the value in the patina.
