@Springer, I am curious if the slight discoloration in the center of the lume nipples can be addressed without damaging the dial? I ask because mine looks very similar with a very sight darkening in the middle of the dot that really doesn't even show up unless under magnification. Or, I am going blind. Probably the latter.

The discoloration is common on these watches and is hardly visible unless louped or photographed. It doesn't bother me at all. It is what it is.

Thanks for the reply. It doesn't bother me either, my concern was more along the lines of will it spread. I suppose a few more decades will answer that question. Great find, beautiful watch, and now you have one for each wrist and can track four different time zones.

If you think I need to place a thread in the vintage section to sell a watch you are about as clueless as they get.

Thanks Doc, Best to ignore this guy. He's a forum agitator and troll.
