Hi-Test Radium Touch-up Kit for Watches (ca. 1950s) 

This touch up kit has a glass rod, a bottle of adhesive (left side of photo), a  bottle of  thinner (right side of photo), and an instruction sheet.

It is missing the radium-containing paint (a mix of radium and zinc sulfide) and a brush. These were undoubtedly removed and disposed of because they were radioactive.

Pretty much everything you need to know is indicated on the instruction sheet.  I particularly like the comment that "A perfect factory job is assured by even a beginner."
