    Repaiting dial

    How much do you think a repainted dial decreases in value compared with an original painting.

    My watchmaker want to repaint my watch, which he injured during servicing.

    Should I leave it as is, or should I repaint it.



    Before



    Best regards

    Hi andsan,

    What a shame. If it was me I would leave it as it is and do a deal with your watchmaker that the next job is free.

    Regards,

    It's an old watch so a few damages are to be expected as part of its history and are normal. Keep it as it is.

    The dial appears to be okay to me, and indeed, it looks excellent for a watch of this vintage. I would not refinish the dial.

    Don't let him touch the dial. Injure him with a baseball bat.

    Tank you

    Your view has convinced me that it should not be repainted. Now I will talk to the watchmaker. He has offered to reimburse the service cost and he would pay repainting. Then I think he pays me what repainting would cost and then some more, I think this is fair, what do you think?

    Best regards

    It can be, I'd still beat him up.

    Do not see any reason for repainting. Keep it as it is.
    Kind regards

    Definitely keep it as is. The only justification for refinishing a dial in my book is when condition is awful to the point it can't be read.
