Additional Information

I’ve tried to place this watch in a 1961 Bulova line based on the dial and the best I can come up with is Sea King line A but he numeral font is not an exact match. The crown and bracelet are not original.

Sorry looking for some guidance, should I be worried about the radium in this watch? It looks like the numerals are green rather than the usual orange of patina-ed radium so I’m unsure what the standard procedure is. I just recently bought this piece in fact.

IMO you are ok with the dial, just don't go licking it :-)

If it has been re-dialed, chances are it's been done with none radium paint
