I received this watch from my Dad for graduating high school, eek... almost 17 years ago now. It's seen better days, way better. A friend of mine who is a jeweler and has contacts w/ watch makers has told me it's not worth the cost to do anything to it as it's not a valuable watch aside from sentimental. I agree with that and understand her point but I'm posting here so that really doesn't matter, does it?
Take a look at the pics I've attached and tell me what you think about what I'm thinking...
I've been seeing a lot of media blasted cases and I think that I have a watch that would be a great candidate for having it done. I'm not sure what to do with the gold plated bezel yet but something needs to be done. Also the pushers and crown need some TLC as well. Lastly a new crystal as this one is scratched to hell and back.
So am I crazy to consider having the case blasted to a matte finish as well as the pushers and crown then replating the bezel or even considering some kind of PVD treatment for the watch?
Thoughts and opinions please,
