Hey Lutec's!

I also tried to "repair" it with photoshop this week-end but was not satisfied enough to share it and planned to keep it for myself. Since you posted a photoshop repair meaning you are going to repair it by yourself, my work may be interesting for you, so I share it!
Here's what I made:
- I created a small '5' for the '54' power reserve indicator (from a reverted 2 + pixel editing)
- I took a big red '3' and made a small black '3' from it
- I also rotated and joined together some existing numbers to make '30', '36', '42', '48' and '54' for the power reserve indicator

I'm really not satisfied with the rail (the circle) which is misaligned. Do not hesitate to tell me if this may help you or is completely useless!



[Edit] I can also send you my photoshop file if you want

Maybe he made it himself with Illustrator or Photoshop.

But now, is the new Dial simply sticked on the base like a sticker?

I had another V 61 dial (mint) which I used as a scan ; and therefore I enhanced it a little bit (more contrast and less parasit pixels) before printing it upon a glossy papersheet which I stick upon the old tarnished dial.

Enhancing means about 3 or 4 hours work, pixel after pixel, on a bmp format file.

Cheers,

Wink

I prefer to restore dials with enamel, but your work is so great Eric !!
I suppose it is very difficult to see that it is a scan.
