    Omega cal. 750

    So I got this huge monster a while ago.
    I want to restore the case, as the plating is in terrible bad condition.

    It's a 40 micron layer, which is too thick to remove for the local plating shop

    The only option I can think of now is to sand it down, polish it and have it replated. Any other ideas? Sanding would take many many hours as I don't want to mess up any of the edges.

    The company I talked to said they will do it without removing old plating. In your case, maybe they would even out some sections on the side first?

    That's real gold used in plating the case. Don't sand it, buff it, or refinish it~Cheers!

    yes, buff it on a bench grinder with a cotton wheel and rouge, no need to strip it off.

    sorry, looking at pics would help, rouge isn't going to help that...the plating company sounds like a good one.
