I finally got a 6159 and it needs a bit of restoration (refinish shroud, hands, dial) and replace or polish crystal. Any recommendation on someone who can do the work without requiring parts or who has access to the parts would be greatly appreciated.

Here's what it looks like:

TIA for your suggestions

Does restoring a watch i.e. refinishing shrouds, hands etc. reduce its value?

To a collector? Yes.

To someone looking to buy a turnkey watch? Probably not, but why risk it? Besides, the costs to restore a watch will usually exceed the difference in sale price.
