Restoring Vintage Timepieces and Luxury Watches

Restoring your wrist or pocket watch can mean a lot of things. There are a few things to keep in mind when restoring your vintage watch depending on the condition and what your goals are.  The first mistake a lot of people make is altering the condition of the dial. Over time the dial of your watch may begin to discolor for a variety of reasons. People automatically assume they should redo the dial. This is done by refinishing the dial and repainting the information on the dial back on. This is the number one most devaluing thing you can do to your watch. If you can’t stand your dial and want to do something about it, try to find a replacement original dial. I never recommend refinishing your dial. This holds true to redoing the luminescence on your dial or the hands. Good rule is not to do it. Period! Also polishing an old watch is not a great idea unless a professional is doing it. Of course if you don’t care about what your watch will be worth when your done than just ignore everything here. If you are just looking to spruce up your old watch than go for it. Make sure the watchmaker that you give your watch to is qualified to work on your vintage timepiece. Bear in mind that these repairs can be time consuming because the parts may not be available for your watch. Therefore they may need to be fabricated.  To be continued…….
