Deciding to get your watch restored can be a big decision, and not just because it can be a pricey one. Sometimes restoration means replacing parts in a watch, and that can mean lowering the value of the watch. If getting a watch functional and pretty is more important to you than keeping all of the original, broken, old parts, then restoration is right for you. There are convincing cases for both arguments, but it comes down to what you want for the watch.
Restoration can be as simple as a cleaning and overhaul, or it can be more complicated, needing a crystal replacement, dial work, polishing, and getting parts replaced. For a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration, most of these things need to be done, but just to get the watch in running order will usually only require a cleaning and overhaul and possibly getting parts inside the watch replaced.
If you need help with fixing your watch, trust a professional.
