It fades

I have noticed that after a while the dial and insert fade to a less intense orange. I also have ordered a new 9015 movement to swap . The dial feet don't match up but that's why they make dial dots

Why the movement swap? Not running well?

The date window looks to be in the right spot for the dial feet alignment. The bezel could be off a bit though which is always the case with Seiko. Replacement dials are just not out there like the 8 series Miyota movements. Avoid dial feet as the glue does not age well. Unfortunately UV fades out orange ..eventually to pink. What sets the 9 series apart other than beat rate is the date window placement and the thinner size. Only blank dials are out there to buy right now other than factory replacements.

Just a smoother sweep and higher rate

Just using the dial that's in it

check the date window distance from center to reuse your dial. You would need a new movement spacer as well as the thinner movement can not be supported by the dial dots.
