I posted this under watchmaking the other day but did not get a good answer yet so I thought I would post it here:
One of my main sources of GRIEF regarding watch restorations is having the dial refinished. I don't like any refinished dials but sometimes there is no other option. I have used International Dial (US) and Dialcraft (Canada) many times in the past but they are slow and the results seem to be potluck - ranging from very good to unusable. They have both done jobs that I had to send back. I have used Kirk a few times and the work was good but at 3 to 4 times the cost, its not someone many of my customers want to pay for. So, I would like to hear about some alternatives if there are any - especially customer ratings. My perception of dial refinishers in general is that they are all a little flakey.
