This is an older thread but I wanted to update it with new photos of the last 3 remaining watches from the 6105 Project Drawer. The Hand Sets on 2 of the 6105s were in Very Poor Condition with ugly, moldy, and blackened lume and one 6105 had water damage and paint loss to the Dial. The Horrible Hands were ruining the overall look of otherwise very nice looking 6105s. Originally I was going to install Aftermarket Hands but based on Rey's recommendation decided to send them all off to Guy for relume and restoration. Thank You Rey for the Excellent Advice
All of the work was completed by Guy a long time ago but it took me over a year to pickup the completed parts in the US. I was completely shocked at how good the parts looked when I finally was able to pick them up but now that they are all installed and the 6105s are finally finished I am Absolutely Thrilled.
Guy's Work is Magic The relume on the hands is a perfect match to the color and texture of the Hour Markers. Sweep seconds orange dots are just spot on perfect - not too orange - not too red - with a perfectly faded and aged look.
Guy's Relume of the Hands turned out beautifully but I did not think the Damaged Dial that I sent to him was repairable. I've had Dials where paint loss and damage has been touched up with a black marker and they look just terrible. I had very little hope that the Dial would ever look decent again but once again Guy delivered and I was completely stunned when I saw the Dial after the restoration. The transformation is truly incredible - I can't believe it's the same Dial that I sent to him. I have looked closely at the Dial under magnification and I simply can't even see where Guy restored and touched up the paint loss and damage. The restored areas completely blend in with the rest of the dial and are completely unnoticeable. Guy's work exceeded all my expectations by a long shot
Thank You Guy for the Beautiful Work! The 6105 Project Drawer is Now Finally Completed
