That is a nice job. You must be over the moon with how it turned out.

it looks fantastic! How long of a process was that? And just curious did you ever consider to just have the movement serviced and leave the natural wear and tear patina on it?

This was my Father's watch that was not at all taken cared of for many years.
It sat in storage and was not wound or worn. When he gave it to me it was not working. I am happy with the turn out.
And now I can enjoy it for another 50 years!

Cheers!

possible, but it just might be.

Turn around time for getting parts and polishing...changed crown and other parts
took 6 weeks. The dial was too scratched up. And the watch was dead.
The acrylic glass was cracked. The watch had a dent....so it was time for restoration.
Was given 2 years warranty for the movement.

Way to resurrect your father's old watch. Looks like it was well worth it.
