It's not everybody's cup of tea and before the NY gang commend this damaged dial as 'shitage', I honestly have to say that I kinda like this 'one of a kind' combination

Is it because of the white looking print? It says "swiss" only, so I am betting it is original and the gilt is just very light.

black service dial. the lume seems to be that of a swiss OCC service dial, but I could be wrong. PS, is this a gilt or service dial?

Simple rule John, to me a service dial never has a SWISS only print.

When a dial has been changed with Rolex before 1962 they would have used an old stock, radium swiss dial. After 1963 when tritium <25 came as international rule we see the usual Swiss T<25 but with this particulair 'Rainforest' lol-dial..<br>
Imho the indexes are relumed long ago maybe even by Rolex.Lumes doesn't fit perfectly in the lines printed on the dial and geiger just told me it's tritium, so about that you're right ;- )

Here a close up of an rare early gilt 6200 service dial with an T added after Swiss...Rolex logo was having the small print instead of the usual big one....

but I will check through my photos when I return and see.
I distinctly remember a swiss OCC service dial for 6542 in my archives. Not to say your dial is that, I could not tell and agree it is a gilt if you tell me as you have the watch in your hand.
I happen to like the dial in yuor watch. it is really nice and even and has beautiful lume.
