I'd say it's a new machine using old parts. I think the tone arm is not original (soundbox is too new) and the cabinet may be newly built. The back bracket is old (not a crap-o-phone recast) and the horn might be old under that new paint. Without seeing the motor it's hard to tell- but. If the needle tracks properly this might play well. I can see why someone might build something like this- I have a similar swiss-built machine and the cabinet is made out of very thin splintery oak.
