16520 T serial with "swiss made" dial

Hi all, first time potential buyer of a vintage Rolex, and I'm somewhat not sure about this particular Zenith Daytona

It's a 1996 T serial Daytona, however the dial has "Swiss Made" rather than "T Swiss Made T"

Does that probably mean it's a later service dial?

Later service dial, I am suprised they didn’t replace the bezel also....it’s way over polished..

Thanks, it looked like a service dial and polished, but wanted to confirm

Forget about the dial for a moment .... Look at that poor case, especially that whittled-down top right lug. Terrible polishing job. Big pass.
