    Polishing a bronze watch

    Iím looking to bring my bronze watch back to the beginning by polishing out the patina. Whatís the best way to do this? Thereís lots of little grooves, such as along the bezel, and on the crown.

    Iím not sure how to do this.

    Hereís the watch, for reference.

    Tomato ketchup.

    Leave it on for a few minutes then wash off with an old toothbrush, it will be like new.

    I wouldn't touch it--no way is a shiny bronze case going to look better on that watch--might look for a different strap, though.
