John is right about these dials. I have one of these as well, with a slightly different engraving pattern, and it too came from the factory with the rectangular track on the dial. I was eventually able to locate the proper dial, probably the only good by-product of the recent "gold rush" of movements being orphaned by those who sold cases for scrap.

The angle of the corners on the 68/69 dial is too sharp as is to match the corners of your case, although it does look better than the rectangle in my opinion.

With that said, I actually have the dial you are looking for in luminous (though I don't think I have luminous hands), as well as the 68/69 dial in raised gold numerals. I also have movements. If you are interested, let me know via PM.
