    When cleaning older (100 yr) movement, do you want clean and shiny or just functional?

    I picked up an old Mauthe GF clock, and it is in serious need of cleaning. However, part of the charm is that it just "looks" old. For those of you that have cleaned one or more old clocks in the past, did you try to make it look shiny and new, or did you keep the old look and clean, polish...

    History and Value of Antique British United Clock Co. Clock If Possible
