new dial faces
Produced in-house, we offer new dial faces.
Using either original cosmetically damaged or new aluminium faces, together with colour-matched paints and inks, we are able to produce faces that are virtually indistinguishable from the original items.
The process is quite lengthy and begins with the digital scanning of original faces, from which printed acetate negatives are produced. Then this acetate is placed over a specially coated printing plate that is then placed in a commercial quality Ultra-violet light box that etches on the design to produce a printing plate.
This plate is then used in either a screen or pad printing method to apply the design to the previously painted face blanks to produce the finished item.
Each printed colour requires a separate printing plate to be made.
