Mike, to tell you the truth, I'm not sure I've ever seen an 827. Since I've owned this watch and have been paying attention, it seems like most or all I've seen have been 826's, even with cases marked 827. I haven't the slightest clue why this would be.
As for the dial I found, it was luminous, just like mine but a bit smaller. But your dial is still correct. Both watches are shown in the 1929 catalog. Yours lists both radium and black figure dials, while the solid gold version says radium dial only.
