I know that it's to be expected on a watch that's nearly 60 years old, and I'm quite happy to live with it. However, is it something that a good watchmaker can effectively remedy in normal circumstances?

These vintage watches have suvived a long time. They are not going to be perfect. My 6284 is not perfect, but runs well and looks great to me. That's all I care about.
