Very cool. I have seen about 3 of these gilt Date dials gone...

...all speckled like yours and all within the 65-67ish range. Very interesting effect and they all have a different pattern. And you're right, it's under the lacquer so it is hard to put your finger on what's happening when you loupe it, as there are no other faults to the top coat really. Amazing what time can do.
Also really like engine turned bezel on Dates--you picked a winner, Jason--enjoy!
All the best,
