Dial restoration
Engraved London brass and silvered break-arch dial.

Engraved brass & silvered dials are fully dismantled and the spandrels
and other parts are cleaned by ultrasonics. The condition and stability
of the wax in the engravings is inspected, new wax melted in as
required, then silvering is carried out on subsidiary dial parts, chapter
rings, and complete 'single sheet' clock dials.

* We do not restore fired enamel dials (French clocks) or screen printed 20th Century mass produced dials.
