  1. Thanks again for your help with this.
  2. Sometimes a dial looks fine for maybe 50% of the surface , but has those small spots on one area only. That area maybe black, and so the spots show more so. Could that area just somehow be painted rather than a total dial restoration?
  3. Thanks again for your input with this query. Along the same lines regarding dials, can they be 'touched up' where only part of the dial needs work on it - inevitably spots. Or would you need a complete dial restoration?
  4. Thanks for your reply
  5. Hi I often see watches for sale which I would like to purchase, but part of the plating has worn away. Is it then possible to have a watch case just partly replated? Thanks
  6. Thanks, yes, very helpful.
  7. Is it commonplace for old alarm watches (50s & 60s) to have a hole on the back? If so, does that make them more prone to getting dust/dirt inside. Thanks
  8. Thank you very much everyone for your comments.
  9. Is the Hamilton electronic superior technically to the Hamilton electric?
  10. Thanks again for that!
  11. Thanks again to everyone for showing interest in this Alter watch. The 2 pictures that you have come up with spinynorman, are in fact the actual watch that I bought from ebay several months ago. What I now recall is the seller two times ago (in Portugal), saying he believed it was French. Being non technical with watch movements, may I ask what sort of quality the Lorsa is like? Much appreciated.
  12. Thank you so much for taking the trouble to investigate this for me. Interesting to note, is that the guy I bought the watch from said that the guy he got it from was in Portugal, so maybe that ties up! Once, again, thanks for all your help.
  13. I have this watch probably from the 50s called Alter - maybe French or Italian and hoped someone might have heard of it. It has a normal dial with a sub second hand, but also has the word "cronometro" written on the dial which apparently means 'stop watch'. I thought that stop watches had a separate dial for that purpose. Can anyone help?
