I have a 1940's era Doxa chronograph (will post pix later today) in a gold (solid? Plated? Colored?) case. It actually still runs, though it has no crystal, and no back (so no serial number - unless there's one on the mechanism or in the case where I can't see it). The dial and hands are used, but surprisingly not as bad as they could be for an unprotected 75 year old watch.
But it obviously needs a crystal, and a back, and a solid cleaning - and maybe some refurbishment work (gently polish out the dial and hands a little, perhaps)
Any recommendations on how to approach this, or to whom I can outsource this work to? The last thing I want to do is bugger it....
(There's a similar chronograph posted on eBay right now at $2950, for reference - and I think that same watch is listed here on Watchuseek, too) mine is different in that it has the numeral 6 rather than the tick mark.
