    Speedmaster Professional Subdials?

    I came across this Speedmaster Pro, but the subdial spacing looks more like that of the Reduced--for instance they 'cut into' the indices at 3 and 9. Can anyone verify if this looks suspicious, or if there is a variation out there of the Pro that is consistent with this? Thanks in advance all

    I'm also thinking it's a fake. Besides the subdial placement being suspicious and looking like a 39mm reduced, I noticed the lower subdial is tracking with the primary hour hand while the minute subdial is not, which is usually a giveaway on a fake movement where the chronograph complication does not function.

    I assume this is an auction. Can you link to it?

    the extreme links of the bracelet are not signed. I think fake.

    The end links on authentic Speedmasters are not always marked with the part number.

    That's interesting. I'm going to study the catalogues.

    Here you go. Straight from the horse's mouth.

    But here is the problem with authenticating a watch from pictures. To be real, everything needs to be accurate, but to be called a fake, you only need one indicator - but you need to be sure of that indicator and that the indicator is something that wouldn't have been changed during service. For example an unsigned crown or an aftermarket bracelet by themselves are things that make you go "hmmmm" but not absolute proof a fake.

    Whenever I see a really bad photo trying to authenticate an expensive item, I always get very suspicious. I get even more suspicious when there is one good picture and the rest are bad - especially if it appears that the pictures may not be of the same watch.Name:  omega-speedmaster-moonwatch-professional-chronograph-42-mm-35705000-3-product.png
