The first photograph shows an after and before restoration of a very corroded dial. I try to keep as much of the original as possible with light cleaning and patching if possible, even matching painted corners, although I can produce a new dial. I prefer the dials to leave my studio looking as if they are old but have always been loved and loked after. Dials can be posted but I can only give a price estimate from a's only when they are in front of me that I can really tell what condition they are.
