Black dial with gold, radium?

Submitted by KodachromeCrawford on January 21, 2022 - 5:01pm

Hello everyone! Just received a ladies Bulova, it has a black dial and gold numerals. I have no idea of the model, I believe the back case has been replaced as there is nothing engraved. When I asked previously I was told that this would make it most likely non-conforming. So my issue is this, I want to open the case and look at the movement (to help with identification) but now am worried that it could be a luminous (radium) dial. I'm going to try to attach a photo. Any help or info is greatly appreciated ! Thanks!

I don't believe the dial or hands are luminous. You should be ok to open.

That is not a Radium dial. You would be able to see the chunky Radium paint on the numerals, and these are oridnary paint. (ink)
