Hi, I've been collecting and repairing watches for a while as a hobby, but I'm looking to start selling a few of the ones I don't wear or I think might be more appreciated by other collectors.
One that I'm looking to get rid of is an old Omega I picked up cheap on eBay as it doesn't seem like one I would wear as an everyday watch. It's nice looking, late 1920s I think from the serial number, sterling silver case is in good condition etc. just need to give the movement a service and buy a strap. The only thing I'm not sure about is what I should do about the enamel dial being cracked?
If I was planning to keep it for myself I'd leave it as it's part of the whole vintage look, but as Ive never tried to resell any watches before I'm not really sure what other collectors would prefer?
So what is the general opinion here, should I leave the dial as it is, and keep the watch as original as possible? Or would it be better to try and find a replacement for it?
I've had a look around, but with it being very old, and possibly quite rare as I've not seen any others yet, so I haven't had any luck locating one yet.
