    Is this a redial? The text looks a little bit weird. It's a 2639 with a cal 265 from 1949.

    Nothing sticks out to me as a redial. She’s a tired old girl Though.

    On a gieger counter if she's 70...

    on the other hand you asked about the dial... but not about the lume or the correctness of the watch...

    What about the lume? Looked at different ones of the same model, all of them looked the same on the hands imo.

    The correctness is a little bit off. Might need a service but I need to get some stuff home before I do more to the watch.

    If it’s 70 years old as I’m sure you verified by serial number. You would not expect tritium lume.

    Also dial has lume, but what about the hands?

    Actually think it's an original dial, it just doesn't belong to this watch. Looks like it belongs in a case with a smaller aperture.

    I don't think so. Before I bought this one I looked at a few others and they look the same, that kind of dial in that kind of case. I think the reason for those marks make sense because how you put it in, don't know how to explain it in English.

    Here's another one I looked at. Looks basically the same to me?

    Edit: nvm. The dial looks a bit different.

    The case might have been replaced on mine. I'm not sure. But if I had to bet my life on it, I would say it's original and that those marks got there when someone pushed the movement back together poorly.

    What's tritium lume?

    The hands have lume? Or it looks like it used to have at least.

    Btw. Looking at the case again, I think I reconsider, looks weird. But the glass was wrong I think. Didn't have that ring inside, have ordered a new one. Maybe that could've been a problem? Photo without the glass:

    Damnit should've never started this thread... Now it seems like all of it is wrong :(

    Notice on those last two images how the gap between the case and hour markers is larger on your watch?
    Here's what I have learned from this forum, there is either lume on both the hands and dial, or there is lume on neither. If there was lume on the hands it would be where those black lines are.
    Tritium is a less effective and less radioactive luminous substance than radium. Radium causes seriously negative health effects and hasn't been used in a long time. You can find a lot of information on that with a quick search.

    Why
    Why would the dial have lume but not the hands?

    @X350 XJR has a point about dial-spacing and the case.

    There are 2 questions that need to be asked and you asked only one of them. Is it a redial? No. The other question is the watch original to when it left the factory? That I question.
