Response to I doubt it- dots too close to the chapter ring, have you

No mistake - it's a lacquer oxidation bubble only. Here's a comparison with an example of HQmilton - a perfect match:

The space between the dots and the hashes respectively the chapter ring is also correct:

You've perhaps mixed it up with this Beyeler version here:

The whole dials for a layout comparison:

Further, the patina looks totally honest. No doubt here. Initially I've wondered a bit about the fine lume granulation, but beside of the Geiger result it shows outer long-term soaking traces/discoloration (the dial got obviously humidity somewhere in the past), and its application quality is ok. A good part of the granulation effect comes from the image noise.
