    Al- A follow up post to Mr. Ridley. The time he spends on the phone educating you on every detail and aspect of the watch-is amazing. I can say that I know he is busy and that time he spent with me is worth quite a bit IMHO. I am excited to see the final product and do appreciate the input form those who have responded as well as PM's me. Regards!!!

    Well-here is a before picture. I am only having him do the movement service and perhaps clean it without doing a polish (I never polish my watches). I have the original bracelet on it now but I take off most of my originals and wear my vintages with 93150's w/ 580 ends. I bought a bunch of extra bracelets and they wear much more comfortable plus I can preserve the original ones. Here you go: Gilt 2.jpg

    Well- I sent my 62' 5512 off for a service to Bob Ridley. I will post results when I get it back. I spent a good bit on phone with him and he certainly knows what he is talking about!! I know it will be expensive but you get what you pay for in life!!

    I have seen plenty of examples of his work--My question's were not about the quality of his work but specifically: How long did he have watch--and what was charge for a basic overhaul.

    Has anyone here used Bob Ridley of Watchmakers International to overhaul a vintage sub? If so--how long did he have watch for and what were charges? Just an overhaul of movement--no polish or case work!! Thanks!
  9. Definitely wait till it loses or gains time and not running well. Why spend the money when you don't have to!!
