My Grandmother gave me one of my Grandfather's watches recently. From what i can gather it is a Revue Thommen with MSR T54 movement. While i enjoy watches I am hardly in the know about them and was looking for a bit of info on it. Before i go on here are some pics. (I know i stink as taking macro photos...)
It appears he used it quite a bit and i don't anticipate it being of great value to begin with but i think its a great looking watch IMO with sentimental value and i'd like to use it regularly.
I also found this.
But i was hoping for more info on the watch itself.
I had intension to take it to a jeweler/watch place and have it cleaned up and have them buff some of the scratches out of the lenses if possible. Obviously i'd get a new band as well as the stretch band it came with is quite dingy and i'm not really a fan to begin with.
My questions are...
-Is the watch one that i should take it somewhere special to be cleaned up or am i safe with a local jewler?
-How much does having it cleaned up usually cost?
-Is this something i have to get someone to service or am i good to go?
If so what does that usually entail/cost?
Hope this is in the right Forum... if not feel free to relocate!
Thanks in advanced for all your help!
