Now there is only one question open:

Which dial variant was Roger‘s own watch?
Seems that the DayDate variant in e french article is really black.

Moore‘s watch from the pics was a date only, so maybe there was a black dial variant available?

To my knowledge,  there is only one color for the dial.
It is a blueish/dark color,  (looks blue under the light).

Coming back to the SA model, I would vote for the "Swiss" dial, but difficult to be 100% sure.
I will send later pics to illustrate it.

The right one looks like black

Though I know that metallic blue dials where very popular back then.

It looks black under certain angles.
Also, some dials have faded under the sun

Under the light, the dial looks black, but please see the upper part of the dial, you will see some blueish shade.

The blue/green sheen of the dial is absolutely invisible in certain light. You kind of have to work a bit to get that color to show up in photos.

Nice I like that a lot.
How do you turn the bezel?

The bezel is fully recessed into the case at 9 and 3, but accessible at 12 and 6.

Now can you identify this watch?

Flipped in post, hence on the right arm. The bracelet looks like a Rolex?

Could be a Rolex Datejust with an oyster band.
Dial looks silver or white
