Well...6105 dials ( my error earlier!) don’t become available very often. I’ve been in the situation of needing a dial, and if I still was, I’d have bought it if the price had been reasonable. With the Seiko logo replaced, the indices relumed and a proper clean, it would still be better than an AM dial.

I have a 6105 with black lume. When I bought it, it smelt very strongly of some sort of spray lubricant - like WD40. The watchmaker I used to clean and service it said that the movement was caked in some form of oily gunk. I suspect that this also affected the condition of the lume.

The 6105 dial should clean up well! Lol
It's amazing that the text on the dial is still there.

I also find it surprising that the Bezel Insert on the 6309 is in Decent Shape?

Looking for the bright side of the 6105 Dial seller could always include the following in the Item Description:

"Lume Color is Consistent between the Hour Markers and Hands" :grin:
