What about the 2 year difference between the movement and the case?Is this acceptable?

Is the case back stamped with either L0 or L1?

No problems datewise, a couple of years is fine.

The shadow lines on the dial can be seen (just!) running from the centre to just miss the bottom right of the "A" in Bulova, and a millimetre above the number 2 to touch the dial edge a couple of mill. below the corner.

Same on the left side, just misses the "B" and above the 10. The lower shadow lines are harder to see, unless you tilt your screen back on your pc/laptop/tablet!

I was just looking at this one again and when you look at it in the light and move it around the shadow dial is apparent.I can'f find a notch indicating a redial but the again.....
