Hi, all -- Trying to determine what model UG this may be. I haven't seen a dial like it anywhere online but given what I know of its provenance I'm reasonably confident it's authentic (as it was sitting in a drawer at my wife's grandmother's for decades).

Hope everyone has had a smooth slide into 2020! I'm looking to potentially purchase a couple of watches to kick off the year on the right note:
1. Universal Geneve FS - Ferrovie dello Stato - Cal. 64 - FS 864.106

Hey guys, was wondering if anyone with some knowledge of UG Polerouters could tell me if there's a major issue with this example or it can be easily fixed. The chapter ring of this piece is clearly askew, off-kilter, disjointed with the dial. Can this be easily fixed by a watchmaker? Thanks in...
