Hi Scott-I think we spoke briefly about the Camaro on IG in April?
Overall it looks in very good condition and in no way should anything be polished or tampered with externally! Certainly the movement can be serviced and the case CLEANED but, again, NOT polished. The crystal seems to be Ok too from what I can see.
In the UK and for me, this should only really go to Richard Askham at http://thewatchspotblog.com/. There are 2 others very highly regarded too-
although I've personally only used Richard so far though.
Hope that helps!
