This piece shows general signs of wear and tear, although the case lines remain fairly sharp for a watch of this age. Mechanically, the movement appears to be very sound, and is keeping excellent time as of 18/06/19.
I have no reason to believe that the dial has been restored at any point, however this, along with the timekeeping ability and water-resistance cannot be guaranteed.
