    Just in - I had a couple of missing movements from my small Dynamic collection and also wanted to get this particular dial so this seemed to tick a number of boxes, (& it was also a reasonable price!). It's taken a bit of 'battle damage' over the years (small chink in the dial at 12 O'Clock) but as far as I can see it's all original, working well and overall it's doing OK for something around 50+ years old! I'd read somewhere that this particular dial was supposed to represent 'moon dust' as it was produced in the Apollo era? Can anyone validate this and does anyone have a catalogue picture that they can share?

    What you call moon dust is just aging (detoriation) commonly seen on dark dials

    No, it’s a textured dial, not ageing or deterioration. You will see them about if you do some Google searching. Perhaps it’s my photos that aren’t showing it to it’s best!
