Would this also be a touched up dial?
    It's normal that the printed "ROLEX" and "OYSTER PERPETUAL" are in completely different fonts.

    1954 Rolex Oyster 6285 Redial ?

    I found the same dial on the Vintage Rolex Forum website. Even the applied Rolex. I'm not sure what that means but thought it was interesting.

    It's always very helpful to find other examples. You should spend some time carefully comparing the fonts and word-alignment. With respect to fonts, you should look at serifs (or their absence) in letters like "T", "A", and "Y", the length and placement of "legs" in letters like "E" and "R". Also look at letters like "S", "C", and "U" for rounding vs. flattening of the curves at top and bottom. You shouldn't expect perfect duplication, but the basic shapes of the letters are generally pretty consistent for the same version of a dial.

    For example in the above photo if the dial is original should not the two letters E be the same in the word Perpetual .

    Since they are not mechanically printed, there will be slight deviations, but the basic font should definitely be consistent. To be honest, the resolution of that photo isn't really high enough for me to get a good look at the letters.
