What to do with dial? Also, looking for dial 8AH movement dial.

Hey guys I have had this 14k solid Bulova Patriot for some time and everytime I look at it it bugs me. The dial is hideous, green cracking, dirty. It isn't a nice patina and is quite unappealing when wearing. I have been looking for a replacement dial for quite sometime. Seems I missed one on ebay quite some time ago. Does anyone have a spare? Also, if not would this dial constitute a redialing? I don't like redialed watches but this may be an exception. Thoughts?

Strictly personal preference, I probably would have it refinished unless the watch carries some historical significance. One thing I would strongly suggest is removing the band you have on the watch. These self adjusting watch bands have springs to push them snugly against the watch lugs and on a solid gold case they wear the gold. A properly sized band would be best for this one.

I might have one.  What are the differences dimensions of the dial?

Absolutely. I send mine to International Dial Co. 

This is a solid gold watch, and by this virtue alone I would say it should get the special treatment.
