Whilst wiping my Flieger, I dropped the watch from a seating down position. The watch fell face first. No damage to the sapphire glass, but there appears to be several pittings on the case (picture 1 - 8 o'clock), (picture 2 - 1 o'clock).
Do you guys think a watch repairshop can brush off/smoothen the pittings? My concern is the pittings are at an angular and proximity to the sapphire crystal (will the repair brushing damage the glass?). Another concern is will the brushed case surface be an issue since my impression is a shiny/smooth surface is easier/less obvious to fix.
At this point, I put sending it back to Stowa as a last resort (due to the shipping costs, and Singapore customs tax involved)
Thanks in advance.
