Watch Description

This one has a 10AN 15 jewel movement with the crescent date symbol. The case is 14k RGP. I've been unable to find any ad identifying the model name. It's running fantastic but it needs a dial refinish. I've never had one of these style dials refinished. Has anyone had International do one of these type dials and were the results good?

Unknown. I also have not had this type of dial re-done, so can't say what the results would be.

The subject watch is not a Juliana. I own a Juliana one myself. The Juliana is a "sports model" watch. It shares the same engraving as the subject watch but has radium dial and Spring bar lugs to wear with leather strap and as a result does not have wire lugs. Read also my earlier comment on the watch.

Hi Alan

Like you I have had a couple of dials back from Idc ive not really been to happy with. But normally they do a good job, but I dont know about a dial like this one. I would be very interested to see the result if you do have it refinished as I have one or two similar dials that could with refinishing

That's good to know George. I was starting to think I was the only one IDC was disappointing.

These dials are normally plain silver. Remove the dial. Use cotton tip with toothpaste. Brush softly. Wash the toothpaste off with water, dry with kitchen paper and the dial is shiny like new.
