I have recently purchased a new-to-me TAG CK1121 Chrono. I love the watch and it is my first TAG, but the dial and hands do not glow like I am used to with other brand new watches. I am thinking this is probably a function of its age (early 90s) and I know one can have the hands and dial relumed. My question is can any competent jewelry store do this or should I seek out someone who specializes in this sort of work? What should I expect to pay to have this service preformed? I have done a google search and found a few companies that offer this as a service, but I don't know anything about them and I don't want the job botched. I live in an area that has no watchmaker shops. If you need work on a watch, you normally take it to a local jewelry store to see if they can do it or send it back to the manufacturer's service center. I am located about 3 hours from Chicago, IL, Indianapolis, IN and St. Louis, MO. Can anyone recommend a competent shop that I could work with or someone on the forum that could do this through the mail? Thank you in advance for your help.
By the way, I know that this could be an indication that the watch is a fake. I have already posted pictures on the Fake Buster thread and at least one forum member has judged the watch to be authenic. That is why I am thinking this is more a function of the age of the watch.
