Watchmaker Dial Pad Printing Tool Restoration

I was looking for a new project and this item popped up online so i managed to bag it at a good price.

This tool is used to print on dials and this technology is still used today.

The tool arrived in a dire state, rust, flaking paint and just years of paint and dirt.

I stripped down all the components, cleaned them and worked on the rusty parts.

Paint Stripper was used to remove the remaining old paint.

The parts were primed and painted.

The parts were reassembled and oiled

Few pictures of the final outcome.
