so my middle eastern friend interpreted these dial the best he can, if you had clearer pics he could be more definitive

grey dial airking translation "armed military area" maybe missing a word as he cant read it all
gold dial airking translation " police Al Jahraa Kuwait " Jahraa is the region or area of Kuwait

Yes, at least a few years ago when I sent my Pool 5500 in for service, they offered to sell me a new dial but noted it wouldn't be the same.

I have learned that this P logo belongs to Pioneer Gas Products (later Pioneer Petroleum, eventually bought out by T Boone Pickens). Other Pioneer Gas award watches exist with the logo on the clasp instead of the dial.

It states on the site "Please note that the Coat-of-Arms was added later to the dial. So it's a repainted and customised dial." It does look reasonably well-done though :)
