This later era gilt dial has taken on a striking and obvious "tropical" patina, which is a color change in the dial to a brown coloration, there is some hang drag shown at the bottom of the dial. The lume plots of the dial all remain intact, but exhibit some degradation throughout. The sweep seconds hand retains its original lume, fully intact.
