I'm really looking for one in a similar condition with the domed crystal and tritium dial... I guess that's hard to find.

I don't know when was the last tritium dials ever produced. There are genuine #22 crystals around - you can email me if looking for one.

That SN would be about 1976, so I wonder if this might be a service dial, perhaps even a Luminova dial and hand set (were these ever marked for tritium?).

We'd need to see other photos, particularly of the inner case back and between the lugs, to be more certain.

The seller is saying its a replacement dial and hands, so luminova. Sorry for the confusion, I just meant ideally I'd get a tritium dial'ed 1016 but failing that this one. I just think the tritium dialed ones have fatter numbers.
