Here is my two cents.

First, I am not sure if the dial looked like this before you gave it to the "watchmaker" but now it's ruined. It seems that somebody tried to clean it with sandpaper.

Either way, I had a pocket watch from Longines which was almost 100 years old. It was gaining roughly 15 secs a day - A DAY!!! So, in a week it was max 2 minutes off.

I had another wrist watch also from Longines which was almost 60 years old. This one gained max 10 secs a day.

Bottom line: just because a watch is old does not mean that it's unable to keep time. Find a real watchmaker.
