    Attempt at first vintage speedy on the bay, is it real?

    here is the link
    Vintage Omega Speedmaster 321 | eBay

    I like to believe that I have done my research, but with the costs, id like to validate with you pro's before i continue. some of the things that i think i see:
    1. bezel is a replacement bezel. is it an OEM replacement or a cheap replacement? the print on it looks pretty bad
    2. case back appears to be stamped 145.012 -67, does this match the characteristics of the case and dial?
    3. case looks like it has been polished but edges are still sharp to my untrained eye.
    4. pushers/pusher tubes and crown look too new. authentic?
    5. dial looks extremely clean, so much so that the patina looks like it could possibly be artificial? also should the patina on the hands mirror the quality of the dial?
    6. the replacement plexi has omega logo visible, i have not seen one in person but this one seems really clear compared to other pictures ive seen. can someone tell me if its authentic?
    7. movement looks clean, jewels look new. the regulator dagger has some waterspots, is that concerning?

    any other feedback would be greatly appreciated. the watch looks great to me and i actually like the NOS look to it, if it checks out to be authentic where it counts i hope to put my own 'vintage wear' on it so that we have a unique story through its journey :)

    thanks in advance

    I'm not sure why it is marked as unsold, seller entered tracking number through eBay, can someone comment on the watches authenticity?

    I believe that it's a real 145.012 pre-moon watch from between 1967-1969.

    The hands look to have been replaced. The crown and pushers often must be replaced to remain water tight, and sometimes it's a bad thing to have the originals in a watch this old - but I don't know if these are new.

    Also see 145.012 | Speedmaster101 where it says it should have a dot over 90 bezel, so this one may have been a replacement.
