I'm going through my drawers and found a watch that I forgot I had, a Curvex 330-287. The movement and case are in pretty good shape (which was why I picked it up cheap) but the refinished dial isn't so hot. Anyone have a dial for this, or can point me in the direction of your favorite dial refinisher that can do a better job?

And now for the greedy question. I just purchased another watch with a great case and movement, and an acceptable redial. It is a Curvex 440-641. Yup, I'm now the proud owner of a Rist-Side Fraternity. The dial isn't bad but the purist in me would like to make it right. I know that the cases didn't stand up to wear very well so I'm wondering if anyone has a dial that was salvaged from a broken case. Silver or Black.

I have very good experiences with International Dial Co. LINK. I have posted an example here of my Curvex Peer. They offer excellent value and their site allows you to look at the final result before shipping. It makes things a lot easier in case they have not done what you requested or if you are not entirely happy with the result.
