Looks like the case hole for the winding stem, so not sure what the problem is

This is supposed to be an 005G case set to replace my pretty dinged one, the bezel doesn't look right from what I've seen in the past of the inside of pam cases.

Need the linking code to add your image.

No idea what the inside of the case looks like, but if it didn't come from the factory. You took a chance on getting something either genuine or fake.

Return it to the seller if your worried about it

2pc bezel? and 2 sets of tab notches? (there is actually also a Y config set of notches as well so 3 different notch sets). I've never seen a case like this, my 005 is still together so I can't exactly compare the construction. Was going to take this over to Mike at the AD this week or next possibly, just want to make sure it's legit.

Case is not just for the 05, but for base and Destro models, so 3 notches for movement position.

Bezel is one piece and pressed on around the crystal.

Best to get it checked to be sure

...it's the dial or shall I say its feet that are in different position on destros..

Base and Marina are also one and the same when it comes to mov't notches.

The case is a fluke not a genuine article - fake/replica.
