I've posted the below on F74 as well, but thought it might be worth repeating here, specifically on the ORIS forum, just in case this has happened to any owners here with their divers?
Several days after having ordered it online, a nice quality 2mm flat-headed jewellers screwdriver finally turned up in the post today. So... this evening I thought I'd finally swap over the bracelet on my new Oris Depth Gauge to it's rubber cousin - just to experience the difference in fit, feel and look etc.
Taking, what I thought was great care at the time, I lined up the screwdrivers (the other came in the Depth Gauge's kit) with the chrome headed screws in the lug shoulders as best I could, with both hands ......and slipped!
The result being a fine but more than noticeable 3-4mm scratch to the outer lug shoulder/arm, call it what you will. I won't recount the Anglo-Saxon lingo that immediately followed!
No need to worry I thought, I've had good results removing similar scratches from other SS watches I own - typically to the clasps etc - so I set to work, rubbing said lug shoulder VERY, VERY carefully with an uber-fine emery board - being inordinately careful to keep a consistent pressure and steady straight line whilst doing so.
Eventually, after what seemed like ages, the scratch all but disappeared, but, now I'm left with a moderately shiny brushed finish, instead of the DG's gorgeous satin finish ...and for a WIS as anal as me, the result is killing me!
So, may I ask my illustrious peers and fellow watch lovers here a simple question please...
Does anyone know of a paste, compound, cloth or pad that can produce a fine satin fish instead of a semi-shiny brushed finish? I have a sneaking suspicion I've been a total idiot and will never get the satin finish required back again!
Apologies for the rather lengthy diatribe ...but any suggestions or recc's would be more than greatly appreciated!
