    Agreed. I`m making the assumption that the watch is a Rolex and I`ll speculate that the scratch is in a polished section of the case. If so it's an easy job to have it polished out or polish it out...

    Unlikely that the dial can be cleaned to an acceptable condition. Also possible that the movement is water- damaged.

    Having the dial refinished is probably the best option. Itís a few years since...

    I had one of these, never managed to get it to work properly, canít recall the exact details of its demise but I suspect it involved a crash landing onto a hard surface!

    A replacement dial is the easiest option, its worth asking Steinhart whether they can supply one but I think this unlikely. I tried to source a crystal seal and I found Steinhart to be most unhelpful...

    Classic cars are a totally different proposition, I own one so Iím fully aware of the pros and cons. I suspect classic values may struggle over the next few years, certainly canít see them going up.

    Alcantara is excellent, donít be fooled by the fact that itís synthetic. Last better than leather, which eventually ends up cracking .

    It isnít possible, because the centre links on Rolex are solid gold. OP did state that an extra link had been added and Iím guessing thatís the one that has worn through.

    Definitely a rip-off. Its surprising how little gold is actually used in most gold watches. Vintage gold watches can be good value if you buy right and are happy with the smaller sizes.

    Condolences to the OP, 94's a good innings but that doesn`t diminish the sense of loss when a parent passes away. No matter how old you are you still feel the loss, possibly more than you expect.
