The dial is Champagne coloured with the Omega symbol and Omega signed at 12. Omega writing has faded slightly with age. The dial also has a mottled patina on it which is slightly more pronounced than I would expect on a late 1950s watch.
The dagger hands are original and appear free of tarnishing. The minute hand seems to have a slight bend towards the end of it. There are lovely non-numeric hour markers and Arabic 23, 3, 6 and 9 which balance the dial nicely.
