Oh goodie! It is like spotting the things in the hidden picture puzzle in the Highlights for Children Magazine!

I "see" 4.

And for those  who do not know what I am talking about:

HA! My presumption is that the case back is wrong based on his use of the word Aerospace. That is why my "see" was in quotes.

GOOD catch, I missed the case itself.

I got:
Second hand wrong for SW
Redialed
Green paint in bezel instead of lume
Wrong case back (or as JMH points out, case and back)

My guess is that it started as a GMT, because of the 75B, someone threw in a redial, H/M hands and a SW bezel stirred briskly and called it a day
  :SB:...my optimistic self hopes that the seller is totally clueless and not frankensteining a watch and pawning it off to some poor noob, as original....
thats my 2cents  :#rant
