A watch restoration generally goes well beyond the usual revision. Here a wide field of possibilities opens up to bring back older or damaged watches to a fresh condition again, especially when it comes to valuable collectibles.
So there are for example
- Overhaul including new production of movement parts
- Dial restoration
- Hand restoration incl. covering with new luminous coating
Many famous watchmakers or founders of watch manufacturers have first made a name for themselves as highly talented restorers, especially of highly complicated watches, for example Franck Muller, Michel Parmigiani or Francois-Paul Journe.
