I bought this 7009-3171 ages ago thinking it had an aftermarket dial but would be useful for spares. It actually runs well and keeps good time. On closer inspection I see the dial is marked" MADE IN JAPAN 7009-85N0 R 1 "and am wondering if it may be original.
Any info would be appreciated.

I have just discovered that the unusual pattern on this dial is luminous making it easy to read in the dark. The square pattern makes it easy to identify the 12 o clock position and the luminous hands stand out well against the darker parts of the pattern.
From an initial dislike I have come to think this dial is quite cool.
