    SS polish question

    Hi guys, I have a Omega PO that I would like to polish off some very light scratches. I was thinking of using autosol and a very fine cloth but I am not sure of how to do it. Just polish the whole case, or polish just some parts of it? The sides are brushed, so I would not want to polish these parts?

    Thanks

    Thanks. But I think I am going to use what I already have.

    Would like a comment on how to polish the case with the brushed sides

    Dont use autosol on brushed SS it will look polished after. Cleaned my bucherer with autosol looked liked a breitling after. Some people have suggested using scotchbrite on brushed surfaces.But i have no experience with that

    I would carefully mask off the brushed surfaces.
    Autosol works great.
    Obviously take your time and be careful.
    You might even consider buying a "beater" with brushed and polished surfaces to practice on.
    Good luck!

    I've used this on both brushed and polished stainless steel and it has always worked exceptionally well for me. The full kit is best and will do many repairs. It's easy to use, simple directions and the results for me have been amazing. You can't tell that any scratch repair was needed or even done to the watch after you're finished. Even under several powers of magnification I can't tell where I've fixed scratches. Here's a link and I have no connection to this product other than as an extremely satisfied customer.

    I'm not comfortable polishing my Oris TT1 but would like to get the scratches out of the bezel. Does anyone know a good, reputable place in Atlanta, GA to get polishing done?

    Don't use autosol. It is possible the fine particles can get into the movement or joints and act as an abrasive. Doesn't work too well on obvious scratches too.

    Watchbandrenew supplies a great kit that I have used to great effect, other than on Duratect and Brightz Ti. They don't work well on these surfaces. Probably nothing on the market does.

    I find that no matter what you do to protect the brushed finish on watches, if it's a daily watch, it will eventually get scratched and/or polished.

    My suggestion - don't worry about it. All of these watches can be refinished to look new by a competant watch maker.
