black enamel on engraved case

What is the correct term for the black enamel that fills in the engraving? And how do you restore it? I have Gladstone, where only the middle piece of the case is engraved, and the enamel is totally gone. Also a Cushion Engraved where the enamel is partly gone.

Langford that just sold on eBay

I was tempted to bid on this in spite of the price, since I understand it to be a rare model. But the AGM dial did not look original, it looks like a dial for Bartley also Nelson according to the dial drawings. Anyone reach the same conclusion? Or is it original?
