Sky King three ticks. I have one of these myself. Great watch.

A brother to the other Sky King you posted. I call this a dress dial, although that is not an official term, to differentiate it from the lumed dial model.

Sky King for me too. The dial change is the common progression in dial design that saw the movement away from luminous dials to raised numbered dials during the early 1930s. Perhaps they saw the dangers in the radium paint, as was seen with the 'Radium Girls'
