    I am sorry but what is the question?
    Do you want some advice or is just a show room?

    There is also a question - about the dial.

    To my opinion, you absolutly should keep it! Cleaning a dial is always hazardous and jours is very nice.

    I think it gives it the character of a vintage timepiece. I'd leave it be.

    Only attempt cleaning a dial if you're willing to ruin it - because you probably will.

    That article is from 2008. At that time, Sonny was very much winding down his repair business.

    Also, some of the chemicals he was using to restore dials (he only worked with solid gold) were reclassified as hazardous by the US government and the post office would no longer deliver his orders.

    That was the breaking point for him.

    I hope you benefit from the mistakes I and others have made regarding cleaning dials - particularly the deluxe omega dials - leave well enough alone!
