To restore or not to restore...

Hello Gents,

I know there are different schools of thought on restoration so I was hoping to get opinions from the experts. I've had this 6217-8001 for quite a while and haven't done anything with it. I think it's time. The case isn't in too bad condition and the movement is okay. The date wheel is stained. It's the dial that I am most concerned. It is in pretty rough shape. I go back and forth on restoring it. What do you guys think? Restore, replace, or leave it alone... Thanks!

Would I buy my first complete 6217 displaying that dial maybe not, but if I was lucky enough to own two why not, if the hands etc all looked the inkeeping with the dial, each to there own.
