    Advice on how to clean brushed dial

    hi there to all professionals and hobbyists.
    I had a little smudge on my dial from its last service, it was a tiny smudge and I gave it to a reputable watch maker and the dial turned out worse with a greater smudge, he has used the watch makers Rodico and and a micro fibre cloth and the smudge increased.
    Please what can be done?
    all suggestions are welcome.
    Thanks guys.

    Depends upon what was "smudged" on there to begin with...and the finish. Sometimes a weak solution of dishsoap and water works nicely. Sometimes a foam-tipped cleaning swab works perfectly. Sometimes nothing works period and every effort to clean simply reassures the need for refinishing...
    I doubt you will get an absolute answer via computer...this one will require physical examination...
    Regards, BG

    Hello. Dial issues can be very difficult to resolve...some finishes are so fragile and thin, that any attempt to remove a blemish, results in more damage. In the case of your watch, someone with a bit of experience with such issues needs to examine the dial...it really is not possible to comment otherwise...

    BenchGuy speaks from experience: it will need to be seen on the bench...with a bit of Luck, tho, it might be doable...Good Luck! Michael.
