The vintage watch dealer (FTA on Belmont may mean something to you as a former Chicagoan) said that he would charge me $750 to restore the Gruen watch back in the Fall of 2010, and that it would have a post-restoration value of $900.

Glad I know to stay away from FTA! Everything about that statement is so wrong. Even if it was a truly outstanding restoration, it would never be worth more than a couple hundred dollars. And I can't imagine what sort of service could run up a tab of anywhere near $750. That's bordering on shameful.
