  The Grunow 572 dial consists of two layers. The top portion consists of a clear celluloid layer with the dial scales printed on it. The bottom portion is made of glass with a Green and White background printed on it. Illumination is accomplished with two dial lights mounted on opposite sides of the dial, and when lit, the dial gives off a soft white illumanicance similar to that of a fluorescent lighted clock.
