I would have to say the dial was re-lumed as the radium from that era deteriorated the paint it was mixed with to dust...very cool watch , I love those hands !!!

Updated to Dewey based on this advert that indicates the green gold highlights. I don't believe we have any Governor adverts stating this.

Thank you for amount of time you have researched on my watch.  I can also now look for a crown that came with this model.  The one I have on it, while OEM, is clearly from a newer model.

Is the inner bezel gold green or yellow?  I can't really tell from the photo.  I doupt it would be named a different model based on the highlight gold being yellow vs green, but thought I'd ask.  I have a similar model and mine has yellow gold on inner verticle bezel.

Only six digits in case SN.  Looks like the first digit is a 9, and its just the seventh digit which is unknown.  Rob- are you still checking in?  Mvnt looks like 15 jewel?
