    Any ideas on where to get a NOS 300T dial...or find a good restoration shop?

    I have a vintage 300T Professional (Synchron, US Divers) with a dial that is in need of professional attention. Doxa Sales just sent me a very kind e-mail to tell me what I figured they would say: they have no 300T dials (I had to at least ask, right?).

    Can anyone point me to a source for a replacement dial (NOS or perfect reproduction)? I have spoken with Jack at IWW, who has done alot of beautiful Doxa restorations, but wanted to get input from you all before making a final decision on how to proceed.

    RGM watches in Lancaster Pennsylvania do amazing restoration. I believe they have done several servicing on vintage Doxa from forum members.

    Thanks! I knew that they did Doxa warranty work, but didn't think of them for this kind of project. I'll give them a call too.

    My advice is since you have already spoken to Jack go with him. He has done some amazing restorations, and this is not hearsay. He is extremely reliable, professional, and a real watch enthusiast. His prices are unbelievable. He truly loves what he does.

    For those who are not familiar with Jack, he is from my home state of NC, and lives in Raleigh. Here is his website.

    Look for yourself and see some of the amazing things he has done with watches.

    This is one of the DOXA's Jack restored.
