No, Greg, you're not losing your mind -- I saw this case last night and wondered whether this was another appearance of the earlier one or yet another unholy "wedding." When I compared the serial numbers in the case backs, I found they were different (this one is 59608, the earlier one was 59061). The dials also appear to be different specimens.
With two-tone Illinois, it will be the midcase part that's a different color from the rest of the case -- NOT a bezel of a different color from the midcase and case back, right? It always pays to be careful . . .
I thought I was going a bit nuts (more than I already am)
You really don't see folks doing this often... every couple of years or so
something like this pops up. But to see 2 examples in a matter of weeks with a YGF bezel
and WGF middle and back, VERY strange.
You are very right on the combo. The back/bezel colors will be the same and the center different.
There are normally, roman numerals carved into the inside of the bezel and this has to match the last numbers
of the serial number on the caseback (and if there is one on center too) for TT status to be correct.
Same exact watch, 2 of the exact same combination
