    No, that's completely wrong. Not sure where you have picked that up from, but its not true. Polishing is the art of removing the least amount of material.

    As someone who has estimated to return after set watches back to original, don't bother.

    Think why they picked this watch to be set with diamonds. They would not have set a perfectly good watch,...

    The estimate doesn't surprise me at all, sounds like a classic my watch hasn't needed a service in 30 years. Then they get a stupid estimate to repair and sell it on.

    If the movement has a blockage (something stuck in the train) or the oil is dry etc in most quartz watches it will over consume. This drains the battery quickly, so if it dies again quickly it needs...

    Indeed, involute is also easier to depth. I would like to be able to find more information on the other profiles used now like microgear. Very hard to find any information at all on that profile.
