I am a novice Speedy enthusiast and recently posted a WTB thread for a 105.012 or 145.012 Speedy. I received an email with the 105.012 Speedy with 321 movement from 1966/67. I was hoping I could get some help from the more experienced members as to whether this looks completely original and what a fair price would be. Thanks in advance!

I don't see any pictures. Could you please check if you have the correct links?

Pics work. The bracelet is wrong and I believe the hands are later replacements. There are others far more knowledgable than me in this area. They'll be along shortly I suspect.

I think the hands are possibly original, the lume on them has the same patina as the rest of the dial. that is a very nice example of an early speedmaster, my only reservation would be the case, which looks like a brand new replacement, along with the bracelet.

Appreciate all the help. The owner says everything but the bracelet is original. Any specific as to why the case is a replacement?

Thanks again, everyone!

I think the case is original. It does look to be in remarkably condition, but seems to show the faceted lugs unique to 105012-66. See this thread for more:

As far as I know a later replacement case would not have these.

Thanks Ben. Really appreciate all the help!

Although I think everything is original except the bracelet, $3200 seems a bit high.
