Was the dial for your replacement more like my dial without lume or yours with? I'm curious as the ad shows lume on both but clearly mine doesn't have any. Interesting they're both in Green Gold. Matching set available should someone buy yours afire and want to purchase mine at a great price.

It's curious about the use of these movements in these particularly marked cases. I haven't checked other 827 cases to see if there's an 826 inside. Any guesses as to why there would be this difference in terms of price or a technical reason?

I can't tell the difference between the 3 of these in terms of functionality or quality. All appear to be sweep second as it's hinted at in the main description of the movements, none of the movements are designated with "SS", and none of them have parts shown under "Sweep Second Material". The picture of the movement also shows a sweep second movement.

The only thing left, physically that I can think of, is the thickness of the movements. It says they all have differing center wheel, sweep second post and cannon pinion. The differing parts are all sweep second mechanism pieces.

Sorry to hijack your for sale listing with talk of a mini-doc watch but it's interesting and does lend credibility that your movement is the correct one for the case, not something swapped in later.
