This arrived this morning from The Ukraine, (Luch 3055 electronic)

needed a bit of TLC, day/date changed at 6 instead of 12:( and it was running SERIOUSLY slow (in excess of -900secs/day!) A quick strip down and repositioning of the hands solved the first problem and a session on the Timegrapher has greatly improved the second one, now running at about-10/15 secs/day but will wear it for a few hours and see if it settles down....

What's with the 'radiation' symbol at 3 o'clock?

Do you glow in the dark?

Only when I’ve had my ready brek. 
 

From my days working with RSA93 Regulations, all items containing GTLS (and other radioactive substances as per the Regs) are to display a hazard trefoil, though I can’t remember if there is a lower limit where the Regs don’t apply, and as you can see from the caseback, the activity in these is very small at 26 millicuries. But of course these are U.K. Regulations, so wouldn’t necessarily apply to this watch. 
 

So in this case, it’s either for show, or due to regulations in its home country. There may also be some military meaning, as GTLS on military equipment had to be highlighted on dials, instruments etc by a hazard trefoil or. ‘T’ in a circle.
