carrera 1153 Dial- missing Lume ??? *PIC*

Hi all.
Looking for some help with a dial query.
A Heuer chrono has been a grail of mine for as long time now.
Not having bundles of spare cash ,pulling the trigger on one is a big deal for me. But i'm willing to do it for the right watch.
I have researched tons over the years and have most things sussed.
I have been eyeing off this watch for a couple of weeks now. All seems well except for the fact it doesn't have the usual lume dots at 3, 6 and 9. I've never seen this before personally. Worn or fallen off dots sure. But this one looks clean underneath like there never was any lume dots at any point.
Hopefully someone more knowledgeable and experienced than me can tell me if this is any cause for concern regarding originality etc.
the price is reasonable and from what i can tell a respected and well known dealer.
Can anyone help me at all.
This is my first post. Apologies if i did anything wrong. Think i have it all right
Thank you in advance
