I have a very beautiful quarter repeater pocket watch... but there's a problem. Some jerk removed all of the gold off the case (I can tell, because some of the tips of the case are still tinged with gold) and now it looks very sad, with an out of place crown and lever. I am badly in need of a new case - or should I just re-plate it with gold? Does anyone know where I can get a repeater case like this one? I wanted to keep it in the family for the rest of my life... but I want it to look proper, if I'm going to do that.
The movement is about 44-45 mm in diameter.
Also, let me know if you can tell me anything about the movement. Jewel count? I suppose anywhere from 25 - 33. Can you infer the possible maker?
