    It's a specialist job, but I think there are books on the subject. If the dial is important to you then you might want to pick up some cheap on ebay to practice. I'm going to a meet tonight where a dial restorer often goes, if he is there I'll ask for some tips.
    Nick, lots to learn, late starter.
