brand name and minute track around the dial are slightly raised whereas this is not possible, to the best of my knowledge, when the dial is redone.
Its a great watch, reminds me a bit of the Tank Chinooise from Cartier.
It actually reminded me a bit of the GP Vintage 1945 when I first saw its picture, but I do see some Tank Chinoise there too.
Great looking watch, its nice to see well cared for vintage VCs.
Thank you; it is from the 40ies but I do notr know yet the exact year.
