Riviera Urania compass service?

My boat has an Italian-made Riviera Urania compass that has not weathered well over the years. The globe is hazy and cracking (see picture). It looks like the oil is still in there from what I can see...

Is there a good place in the US that services these compasses? Would it be better to get a replacement such as a Ritchie?

Viking Optics repaired my White Constellation, but it as much as a new Ritchie. It's a much better compass, so I don't mind. I'm happy with the work. Call them and ask for an estimate, but also price new compasses, or even used ones. I don't have the contact info handy, but I'm sure you can google it.

Thanks, WS. Their site does not mention Riviera compasses as brands they repair, but I will contact them and see if they have a recommendation for me.
