It is the normal decompression dial, that usually has the gray and white bezel.  It is from the ETA era, just after ETA bought out A Schild.  Has the ETA movement, should be 1980s? Butch would know.

This one - 1342 736. Late 1970s. Seen in 1977 catalog.
Early versions were based on Zodiac 72B. ETA version issued somewhere after 1978.

I have yet to have an early one in hand I guess.  Every version of this model I have worked on has always been an ETA movement.

Earliest 736 based on 72 cal is very rare, indeed.
