I have recently acquired a 60s Timex from fleaBay, serviced. I am more than satisfied with my purchase, save for two little details: its accuracy can be temperamental (in particular after winding it from completely dead), and the case is scratched and pitted. I am not as bothered about the accuracy as I am about the case. I do love the patina on the dial and hands, but I would rather have a pristine looking case - which brings me to my dilemma. I can have the case replated for about $45-65 and save this beautiful timepiece, or I can scoop up a Marlin reissue for roughly $150. What is your take?
