Who can replace the coronet on a Datejust dial I just pooched?

Long story short - when attempting to remove a piece of lint from around the coronet - get out your loupe. . . Now it only has four balls

Only needs the silver coronet - not a refinish.

Thanks

any dial restorer/refinish outfit can easily replace the damaged coronet for you, thus keeping your dial original, and your watch original as you would probably like it to be. it's just a matter of locating a damaged dial with the same coronet you need. chances are whoever you have do the job will probably have a good supply of spares, or can round the part up for you. if you're in the USA, maybe check with bob ridley in texas as he could point you in the right direction?

all the best!
