All--

Can anyone recommend a good servicing option for a 1965 gilt 5513? Appears to be running fine but I love the watch and with service history unknown would like to have it looked at.

Here's the (potentially) tough part--it has replacement hands that are rather lighter than the dial and I'd love to have them better matched, if possible.

So looking for someone reliable, fairly priced who might have a selection of hands that could be used, as well.

Appreciate any and all thoughts.

Best,
Paul
