What a shame. If it was me I would leave it as it is and do a deal with your watchmaker that the next job is free.
It's an old watch so a few damages are to be expected as part of its history and are normal. Keep it as it is.
The dial appears to be okay to me, and indeed, it looks excellent for a watch of this vintage. I would not refinish the dial.

Don't let him touch the dial. Injure him with a baseball bat.
there is absolutely no reason to touch that dial

You might think I'm gumpy...
Your view has convinced me that it should not be repainted. Now I will talk to the watchmaker. He has offered to reimburse the service cost and he would pay repainting. Then I think he pays me what repainting would cost and then some more, I think this is fair, what do you think?
Definitely keep it as is. The only justification for refinishing a dial in my book is when condition is awful to the point it can't be read.
