    As far as I know there is only ONE company doing enamel (or porcelain) dial restoration or repairs. All the other companies mentioned only do work on metal dials. The cost is about $250 for the enamel (or porcelain) restoration.

    Those indeed are very nice. Are you willing to share what they charged?

    I have used International Dial for many years. Last year I had a customer with an unusual dial pattern. (Seiko) They did not have a die to match the dial, and was told it would cost $200 to make one. I explained to them that the customer would in no way approve an estimate that high. After several calls to the company stressing the desire for customer satisfaction. They did the dial with no charge for the die setup. That's the kind of company I enjoy doing business with.

    Wow, that was fast! I sent an AGN Lawrence dial to International Dial early last week. They received it on the 6th and it's done today (12th). I realize it's one of the easiest for them to do, but this is the fastest turnaround I've ever experienced. Way to go, Rob :Party:

    Hi,

    I just came across this. Yes, it is a porcelain dial. I have been repairing them for many years. Please visit my website at www.dialrepair.com.
    Thanks!!!
