Beautiful little piece. The dial is outstanding.
I don't know what darkened the dial, but I doubt that what you see is just run-of-the-mill patina. I tried a while ago to clean it uo a little, but proved impervious to all my efforts...even straight bleach on a cotton swab. I've since resigned myself to the fact it's staying stained for the rest of eternity. I don't want to get too agressive for fear I'll erase the Lord Elgin logo.

I've used lemon juice with some success on those dials. Might be worth a try.
