That looks like it was taken from a cockpit. I usually don't find that much stuff on the dial appealing but that is sharp.
I hope everyone's hump day Speedy's on past!!
Wow, that dial is really mint condition.
Love that gilt
Thanks! It's got nice wrist presence as well and the 302 movement's not too shabby either.

Correct me if I am wrong but does the term "gilt" not refer to gold?
Dibs noted, but the list is quite long for this one though
So, the exact definition gilt is the past tense of gild and describes a specific technique of applying gold foil or leaf to certain surfaces like painted wood or metal.
With regard to watches, the term is a little more broad and is used to describe the application of any precious metal (usually gold or silver) to watch dials.
Perhaps a watchmaker could better explain but I think I've got it
