I am trying to clean up and repair a little citizen watch for the gf. I'm replacing the crystal which was busted and the battery. The style is gold and steel alternating band, and then a Gold bezel. My question is how hard is this to remove? I would love to turn the whole thing brushed but if I can just remove the gold for now it would really clean up the look. So much of the plating has already worn off, and it just looks beat up. Thanks.
