New to the forum but have been reading threads for a while on here.
Anyway I have my grandpas old 10kt gold Benrus and while it may not have any financial value to it, it does have sentimental value to me because I never met him and it's the one thing i have of his that I can actually use, wear and show off. It works perfectly and keeps fantastic time somehow even though my dad kept it locked up for 30 or 40 years without ever wearing or winding it. BUT i would like to have it serviced just to make sure it keeps running for years to come and maybe even have the dial and crystal cleaned just a little bit even though its not too bad at all. Does anyone know how much this will cost me or does anyone know of a watchmaker who services them for cheap primarily in the Chicago area? I'm a little nervous shipping it in a box across the states and end up losing it.
Thanks for all the help!
