Three years since my last post on on my grandfather's timepiece, and I am happy to report it is currently in Geneva for its complete service and some way overdue maintenance.
I am also being offered dial restoration for this watch, but I am hesitant for them to mess with the dial.
i would love to hear this forum's collective thoughts on dial restoration. Is it worth the cost? Will it impact the value of the watch?
If VC is offering to restore the dial as an option, then I would probably not do it. I'd like the dial to be cleaned, but thats about it.
I had one vintage VC with water damage that VC restored the dial as a requirement for full service. I accepted this restoration because I believe the thought was that without restoration, the damage would get worse over time.
Best Regards, Dan
P.S. If you do not get many responses, I woulds suggest you post your question about dial restoration under a new topic/thread. That way it will show up at the top of the discussion forum, instead of being "hidden" in a post that is three years old.
Thank you Dan! I tend to agree. I would likely use that same money for other watch investments. Cheers, David
