Does anyone have any experience cleaning up tarnished numbers? I have a 1962 Timex Marlin that needs a little bit of work to really show it's potential. The dial is in nice shape for the most part other than the numbers....I would be open to any suggestions?? Thanks in advance! Jamie edit: I suspect the tarnish was caused by deterioration of the lume dots that have NOT aged well...
Just got this watch in today and was polishing the crystal when it popped out! Have looked everywhere and cannot find out how to get it back on! Is it a snap-in? Glue-on? Need help!!! It is an acrylic crystal, btw. Please and thank you!
Hello everyone, I bought a Marlin 1963 with a number 22 movement that was not running. I cleaned it and oiled the pivots, (used the service manuals I got on a Timex forum, really helpful). It is working amazingly well now, very proud. Also, I think someone tried to oil the watch, to get it running, and it leaked on to the dial. I tried cleaning the dial, which only did more harm than good. Furthermore, me opening and closing the watch, two of the nubs holding the dial in place broke off. I am looking for a replacement dial, but until I find one, does anyone maybe have advis
