Could have made a mistake because of the restored dial - Erase

I'm not sure the word "restored' applies

The dial and hands are very bad.  The term "professionally restored", like "fresh tomatos", doesn't mean anything any longer.  Truth would be more like "restored by my sister's cousin Mortie in the basement". But with regards to the case itself Berny, the caseback does belong to the body...note the last three digits of the case number 757 are also found on the rim of the body in Romans "VII  V  VII", a hold-over from pocket watches.  I think the case itself is a V&C part, so checking it against the movement number is simple enough way to determine if they left the factory mated or were married later.
