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!

Wow, I think that dial looks great. It's got some cool texture and the logo and all the text still looks clean. It would be great if you could get the markers cleaned up and some new lume on there, but I don't think I've seen this done well.
