I posted a question about this watch a few months ago and I wanted to share the outcome. I sent the watch in for a general movement servicing and was deciding whether or not to refinish the dial (I know, I know). When I picked it up today it was obvious that he had actually gone in and done some gentle cleaning and it looks 100% better. Now I don't even have to think of messing with the original dial - I think it looks great!
This is what I love about a local watch guy - get what you pay for and more.
