    Current project - Case polishing on my 38mm Big Crown Hunter

    Wanted to let everyone know I started polishing the case of my Oris Hunter. The case comes factory in a brushed finish. I decided to do a full polish. Turning out stunning. Will post pictures soon showing before and after. Wow what a difference!

    The first two show before. The polishing turned out great. Took some time and patience.

    Another, It's hard to capture the high polish with my limited camera skills...

    I figured. Im actually trying to do the opposite in a Doxa California I bought used. Works great but the polished case picked up a lot of tiny scratches. I would rather brush it but I think polishing would be easier.

    I used a really fine steel wool to keep the brushed finish in top shape on my Breitling.
