    Hi Kybill.
    If its just a watch to work on and you are not worried about its value you can change the face, hands or case but it will always be worth more if kept original. The cracks in the face can be cleaned (I will look up some info on this for you later) and they look a lot better when there is no dirt in them. If it bothers you that much then keep your eye out on e-bay for a donor movement with a good face, you can always change the dial at a later date. I dont know if it is the best thing to start with as I am a clock man and dont know a great deal about pocket watches, Bob will give you the answer to that one. Well done on getting your repair area set up, all you need to do now is post a couple of pics in the new “My Shop” section.
    Good luck with it and keep us posted on how it goes.
