first question:

I do not know how to describe it.  I think it should be 6394Q if only consider  the shape of  the antique watches . Because it with a calendar window. 

Q as in Quantième = date in French.

but in the case carved ref.6394.  I judge this is a assembled watch.

Another case I have seen.  in the case carved ref.6394Q ,but it without a calendar window.

the letter "&"  writing on the dail , i think position is wrong. its position should be at the bottom of the Maltese cross toward the left.

Please note the following picture, the red line right across through the center of the letter M.

The red line you drew doesn't look like its lined up with the 6 o'clock marker?

You do not have a front facing picture of the watch you are questioning, which makes it a little more difficult to compare.

But if I draw a straight line from the center of the 12 o'clock marker to the center of the 6 o'clock marker, the line seems to run through the center of the Maltese Cross and I see no problems with where it runs througn the word "Automatic".

of the Q doesn't suffice to deduce the case-back doesn't belong to the watch since its birth, imo, only the ledgers may tell.

Several are the elements of a dial which need to be evaluated prior than those, a good picture taken from the front would help :-)
