    Well worn gloss finishes over time? Pictures? Warts and all?

    I'm hoping some folks who are long term gloss enthusiasts might post some pics of how their glossy bands and bezels have fared over time. Anyone have a some gloss they relegated to beater status?

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.

    i dont have any pics on hand but the well worn gloss ones ive seen/worked with all had the same problem, once that protective gloss layer is worn through, the thin colour layer doesnt stand a chance and youll see raw resin in now time. that said, it takes a long time to wear through that gloss layer.
    also diff. models and colours wear differently.  some have a colour layer with clear gloss, some of have gloss colour on top of diff. colour resin, some (like black) have gloss black on top of black resin.
    if you want protection against dirt, gloss is def. the way to go, takes alot longer to show wear.

    From the parts box for emergency use, and never throw anything away.
