Or maybe they did and I wasn't paying attention.
Anyways, I recently acquired a Glycine airman on a Jubilee bracelet, and while I love the watch, the polished links in the bracelet always felt way too flashy and/or dressy for this watch. I decided to bite the bullet and polish it myself, using a very fine-grained sanding block that I had around for some reason or another. I tried it out first on an old Seiko bracelet that I had laying around and I was shocked at how fast it went, how easy it was, and how well it matched the existing grain.
So, I dove in on the Glycine bracelet and took this pick when I was halfway done to show the before-after contrast.
It turned out great! I honestly can't tell the difference between the links I brushed and the ones that came that way. After I did this I got excited and brushed a bunch of other random crap (like a random metal tin I have) just for fun.
Anyone else had any great success with home brushing jobs? Anyone brave enough to do a whole case?
