How do you fight with dirt and different kinds of oxides, rust, etc on vintage watches?
Are you comfortable with unclear dials, blurred or scratched glass, stained hands, dusty crowns, salted and patina-tuned backs and so on?
I like a lot of retro designs and vintage models, but the difficulty with finding nos conditions definitely stops me to buy something far from nearly new-looking watch.
Looking around the forum I meet really tired watches.
Is it ok to owners? What can be possible to do for this kind of watch?
Is there a common way to restore this kind of watches?
Or it harms the overall sense of the original product and gives that Frankenstein determination?
