It seems that no matter how many same year dot dials we come with, we can also match without this lum dot same year dial as well.
Also many watchmakers added this dot to the dials as well. One concept was that it was to orient top and bottom of the dial in the dark.

The 5508, 6542, 1675, Subs, and etc..I have seen them with and without the lum dot in their perspective years..So why do exactly the same year dials have a lum dot at the "6" spot and some do not, is the question? If it was a tritium content use in watches logically, all the dials from that same year should have a lum dot at the "6".

I agree with you as usual ....
and don't forget that in the 50s some submariners had a very enphasized ( green ) index at 6 .... that seems an equivalent feature of the exc. point.
the answer is elsewhere.

John now try to explain this baby below...This is the link between radium and tritium....probably the rarest 1675 dial in my opinion. It is self explaining not like underline and lum dot at the "6" spot which needs an explanation of it's origins.
