DanielThe result brings the watch to look like brand new, the add-on of material can be seen only through a xenon filtered lamp (thanks to the different wave's lenght of the added material, different to the resilient one).It's clear, after the laser treatment, the part needs to be polished.Since this technique is quickly spreading all over, it's a key factor to me, for the mother company to take commitment (having the knowledge and expertise) to do the job; metals available in the market are not as wide as the vastity of the original materials (think steel alloys) adopted to produce watch parts. That's why the mother company should be privileged when it comes to chose the restorer, because it's (hopefully) able to guarantee an add-on respectful of the original material used to produce the part subject to restoretion.
