Hi Charles,

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree with you, restoration, if done properly, is as important as servicing, it maintains the original aspect of any piece and makes it last longer. Nothing wrong with adding 10, 20, 30 or more years of life to something.
It is a very personal decision though, some collectors prefer not to touch or clean patina, nor repair natural wear and tear, which is fine too.

I’ll be curious to see the results as I have a couple of badly chipped dials that I would eventually like to repair, only if it doesn’t exceed the value of the watch 😆
If you could post before and after shots, that would be great..

Chris
