What we have here could be a temporary solution where the repairer was pressed for time or working in difficult conditions. As long as the watch worked, it did not matter if the used parts matched the original reference. This is often the reason behind the use of non-matching components such as movement, case, case-back, dial, hands, etc. to repair a watch or restore a damaged one.
