I was looking through my drawer and I found the watch my parents gave when I was about high school or so. It is a Bvlgari Diagono Aluminum.
As I was just starting to get interested in watches I was somewhat pleased to know that it does work when I picked it up. (A little Googling says it has an ETA). I vaguely remember this watch being an automatic and used to play and move it to charge it up.
Being a reckless kid back in the day, I dropped it once and the impact left a dent on the side of the case. The rubber itself has shown wear and tear with cracks. But other than that it still works perfectly.
Now my question is:
1. Would authorized Bvlgari service centers be able to restore this watch into good condition? Mainly the dent on the case.
2. This watch must have been close to 10 years old. Would the rubber straps be restorable?
3. I have pretty much outgrown this watch. None of it appeals to me now, other than the pleasant surprise that the automatic movement is still running (don't know the accuracy). So I am not sure what I want to do with it. Do I bring it for service and then flip it? Do I just flip it as is? Keep in mind that I've lost all the books, papers, and box. This surely will hit the resale value?
I am not sure if asking for estimate value is against the rules of the forum.
