Does anybody know of someone who can make a new porcelain dial? I have a South Bend Polaris and would like to find a dial for it or have one made. Actually I'm not sure if an original would be porcelain or enamel.

To my Knowledge, PW dials are all enamel, not porcelain. I have not seen a source for someone making enamel dials

There is a boutique wristwatch company making enamel dials for their watches but it is a very involved process, I don't know of anybody offering the same subcontract.

It is a process done by lots of crafters but I don't know anyone who could make a watch dial with the precision required.

Like Novicetimekeeper said there is a couple making enamel dials but unless your doing a batch of them it might cost more than the watch is worth, and definitely more than waiting to find a replacement dial on that auction site.

Hi,

This chap made the enamel dial for Derek Pratt's H4, a superb piece of work.

Regards,

Graham

Thanks for the input guys. Will let you all know if I find anyone.
Advanced Clock Repair Services - Dennis Kaye I used him a while back and he did a stunning job but with him and going to assume with anyone else it was quite pricey but the dial I sent him was very rare and worth about $600+ you can always look into clock dial repair shops instead of searching for watch dial repairs....there is plenty of them.
