Hi Steve, good replies from the other guys I'd say.
I'm not sure if the 'flat' sub-dial point is due to the photography, but you can't deny the questionable array of parts here. To me the MAIN (but not only) point being the calibre 11 coupled with the latest execution dial and hands. I'm sure you've noticed sweep hand not at 0 also, so a service will invariably be required.
In answer to your question I don't see an issue with the lack of lume alone, we can speculate it could have been factory oversight. For me though, far too many questions together and more may present themselves on close study.
