veneer replacement on a antique clock

I bought an Ogee clock (Chauncey Jerome) that was involved in a accident. Some of the veneer has been chipped and cracked. I would like to replace all of the veneer. Would I need to keep everything (veneer type, stain, glue used) as close to the original as possible to have this as an antique restoration? Would this increase the value of the clock with new veneer verses leaving it original? I believe the veneer type is rosewood (using hide glue) with a reddish stain .

Thanks---- Larry
