Hi folks, thanks for adding me to the group. My question is;
When restoring these 1940's and '50's time pieces, when is it detrimental to the restoration, ie, should the case be left alone if it is in need of replating, or should a dial be left alone?
I have a number of quite rare pieces that I have recently serviced, including replacing a balance staff and getting the movement to work with only 0.3ms beat error.
Any help, views or advice would be most welcome.
