I have used then for several of my watches. The silver colored watches they did an amazing job. I sent an old trench watch case with wire lugs that the plating had all been worn off. The did a beautiful job of refinishing it. The yellow finish was a bit to orange for me, not what you might call a Hamilton" yellow. But, beautifully done, even patina and after one year, no issues!

I also sent a Quadron to have the case lugs redone, new finish and plating. Wonderful job on the lugs, the spring bar holes were repaired nicely, a pin size case hole filled in and the plating. It cost me $85.00, but the watch looks new!

I will use then again
