Good morning everyone.
I have two Bulova oceanographer g from 1969 but with only one bezel 

Everyone worked and in good condition

One with the red cross in the centre and the other with the white cross
Which do you think is the most beautiful/rare 
The question is: which one is better to put the bezel on? And which one to keep as spare parts?

Both beautiful watches. I would keep it on the one that it is on now. I am just a purist who believes I exist as it was made.

I agree with Jim, always best to keep things original. It is interesting that there were 3 different dial text variations for this model.

The same thing I thought, same watch, same year (1969) but different dials. Could the difference depend on whether built in the USA or Switzerland?
