Original P454/5b??

Dear forum colleagues,

I have been recently offered a V&C Cal. P454/5B. My knowledge about these watches is, at best, limited, and there are a number of issues that worry me, which might all well be a product of my ignorance (The seller is well known to me and I have concluded several businesses with him without an issue).

The things that worry me are all focused on the dial:

a) No accent on the Genéve´s second "E". Although I have seen few examples without it in the past..

b) Uneven letter size.

c) Uneven distance between letters.

d) Uneven letter thickness.

Am I facing a poor restoration, a replaced dial, a Frankenstein, a fake watch or simply being led by my ignorance? 

Finally, anyone out there has a clue about the market value of this watch?

Thanks in advance!

Appears to be a poor redial, but the watch itself may be original.
