Two-tone Orange Dialled 4-520858 (61-5773) 100m Parawater Diver

Following my last post on Citizen’s orange dialled export (‘waterproof’) 100m diver, Bert has kindly sent photos of his Parawater version of the same model – but with a two-tone dial:

I have seen one or two other examples of this, with the same yellow raised chapter ring – I had wondered if the lighter colour is a result of UV fading since I didn’t have good images, but the colour appears solid, and Bert has looked at his close up and it looks very uniform:

So this one does appear to be an original variant – I’d be interested in other comments before I add it to the Diver reference page. Many thanks to Bert for his pics – he also has the full orange version, so here they are side by side:
