The dial would appear to have been restored in recent years, but to an excellent standard, with the Longines signing matching an Egyptian style Art Deco font. The Tiffany & Co signing is also an excellent mate to the brand font. Whether the dial was originally Tiffany signed is un-certain as it's impossible to tell with the age. Regardless it is a very well executed restoration of a dial, on a charming watch.
