Usually these TTs are found with white textured dials. Interesting watch however!

Do you have any better pics? The dial is a rare variation it seems with the split oyster perpetual. Is it smooth or textured?

...through the years by adding gold bezel and crown. If that dial is genuine--as Eric said it is potentially a rare one and the hands seem to match--then I seriously doubt that someone went the other way and popped it and a matching handset into an originally TT watch.
Best,

I'd just like to say probably one or two more times...probably.

...The later gold bezels do not fit.

Most of the 6202 gold bezels and inserts were replaced as they were the first batch that did not fit well , popped off or cracked...

Here below is a tutone, missing the gold bezel. So I put a steel bezel and crown to it. Will have it converted back to original, as I now have sourced a gold bezel, with insert. How lucky of me!

Sorry for the less than 100% pic; phone pic.

And they went for less than the regular ones.

A decent insert for a 6202 is worth nearly as much as the watch head without one.

...not sure how feasible that would be but I think it could fit and the dial appearance/placement would not be too out of whack?
And of course, with this crappy a picture, it's pretty difficult to do anything but spectulate vaguely.
Best,

That's what the 6309 and 6609 really were...

The 6202 can be seen as the mother of the sports models; subs, GMTs, had the rotating external bezel borrowed from the 6202. On the other hand, 6309/6609s are more dress than tool.

The 6202 and 6309/6609 were different in material ways; 6309/6609 were date watches had used a different movement from 6202.So a 6202 dial and movement into a DJ TOG case, IMHO, would not go.

As of course, you are right, when the pic is crappy, it's time to walk away as a buyer.

Best...MC

...than the 10xx series. But AFAIK, the 6305/9 were still using Big Bubble (semi-enclosed) 10 1/2''' cals (7xx etc) and there was no change in lateral size between date and non date cals, i.e. same diameter.
Sooooo... if this were a 6309 case, a 6202 movement would fit, IMO, because they would be essentially the same diameter-wise regardless of the date complication...or lack thereof.*
All the best,
Tom

and I couldn't even give them away... Nah, just kidding

What I've noticed is that the T/T 6202 uses the same alloy bezel but with a solid gold insert. The DJs use gold bezels, and yes the crystal retaining ring is way bigger. Cheerio.
