Who do we have in 149 that can correct an original Howard series III dial with a botched former repair on sub seconds chapter (someone got happy with Elmers glue)?

Pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated..........Keith

If the option is switch dial or stick with a bad dial, I'll stick with a bad dial (this old watch has earned it's keep).

I'll send you a scan Jon. Thanks........

Jon, I sent a Howard scan to your email address at aol from work.

I await your suggestion (can be repaired or live with it).

Best the leave well alone, in my opinion.

Thanks Jon, I won't waste time on the dial. It's ok with me as is. Thanks for taking the time to save me money.

I'm a long time getting here to 149. I agree with Jon's statement. He does take care of us, even when he has to chew us out (like that half breed model 6 Rockford I bought and Wes serviced with a switched ballance cock, or a lever fusee I paid top price for in a silver case).

I don't make a move anymore without research on the find button of 149 or asking the questions of our 149 team. As I say in the project world...I'm fixed (nothing like a good foundation holding up your house). Keith...
