Most won't care as this is a gun forum, but I just wanted to post up a few pics of my most recent project. It is a Tissot Visodate Camper from 1955. The movement had quite a few bugs that needed to be sorted out. This was my foray into electroplating, and I'm very pleased with the final results. It took quite a bit of work, but I think that the patinaed dial and hands look really good against a fully refinished case on this old watch. Here's a few before & after photos:

If you are in to this type of thing, you can see the full repair & case restoration process in the following video. It's a long one though, just FYI!
