So topic of de jour for me...I am considering picking up a val 88. Some of the ones I see online are in better shape than others but I see nothing that is in excellent shape IMHO.
So I have thought about picking it up, sending to a watchmaker to spruce up the case, service it if necessary and then have a new (enamel) dial and hands put in-
Given that the 88 is essentially an ebauche,
Would this then be a Franken if I had such work done.
If it was an original zenith or omega, this would be off the table.
Curious on opinions. Thanks.
