Bezel Did Not Look "Right" to Me *LINK*


I saw the one that you bought, on Italian ebay (linked below), and between the dollar being too weak and the colors on the bezel being too strong, I stayed away. I had the same reaction as you -- that the bezel seemed to be from a Rolex.

I assume that this is a 11630 GMT (or is it the 11063 -- ??). It seems to have a different bezel from the one shown in the Heuer catalog. The shapes and locations of some of the numbers are different, and the Heuers have "dashes" in place of the odd numbers and this one has "dots".

Please let me know what reference number is on the one that you bought, and some additional photos would be great.
