Advice needed regarding servicing historic Panerai (tritium dial and hands)
I am thinking about picking up a 001B with tritium dial and hands and am wondering how you guys (that are lucky enough to have historic pieces) service/maintain them? This will be my first Panerai with tritium dial and hands.
1.) If I send it to Panerai, will they leave my tritium hands alone; if I ask them to?
2.) Can this old manual wind movement be serviced long term without damaging the hands or causing them to fit too loosely on the watch or fall off?
3.) Do you send your older tritium Panerai watches to non-Panerai watch service/repair people?
4.) Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
