    Enamel Dials

    Is it possible to repair these? I have a charming trench watch with a chipped dial. Iím not looking for a like-new repair but something kintsugi-style, celebrating the repair. Does anybody do this kind of thing?

    yes they do kits ant that cheap but they can be repaired yourself but a lot of us never bother as for me it takes something away from the watch ..but suppose depends how bad ,hair lines are just normal also where if around the edge on the number I would be more likely to do it then else where on the dial ..

    Donít think my skills are up to this yet. Perhaps one day... I was quoted $1000 to do the work (shipping extra!)
