Randomly my watch-nerdness was recently revived and I'd love to restore my 5 year old orange monster to it's former glory. It's just got about 5 years of scratches on it. Internet searching recommends scotchbright pads for the brushed satin parts and cape cod polishing cloths for the mirror parts. After working on it for a bit, both will take about a year to do. Its' insanely time exhausting.
I"m wondering if anybody has ever done this with a drill or a dremel? I just don't know much about abrasives and i'm having trouble finding out what sort of attachment for a drill or dremel might give me the satin brushed steel finish and remove the scratches in less than a year. The smooth parts seem a bit more straight forward. Also sending it to jeweler isn't an option as i'd think that would cost more than the watch itself.
I"m just wondering if anybody has any good advice on how to good ways to do this, by any method, drill/dremel or no that doesn't take forever.
