The short version of this watch is my wife found it on Cape Cod at our house and she found it while weeding in the ivy bed in the front yard. Leather strap was rotted away but the watch started ticking as soon as it was picked up. It was the proverbial 'gold watch' for a retiree dated 1970. No idea how or when it ended up in the ivy.
We had the movement cleaned (this was around 1996)but the dial was untouched. It runs within +/- 5 seconds in 24hrs.
My question is the 'pimples' on the dial. I do not want the dial restored to as new but would like it cleaned up a bit if possible. The crystal comes off from the front(this is a monobloc 14k gold watch)and I have been contemplating getting a crystal remover as i also have a '60's Hamilton Thin o matic(?) with the same gold case.
Any thoughts? It is not terribly valuable but it has sentimental value.
My thanks in advance. Oh that is a hair at 1!
