    1st Tissot Post t touch titanium sandpaper

    Hey everybody!

    My first post in the Tissot forum .

    I traded a Pathfinder pag240 titanium for a t touch titanium carbon fiber.

    Really like the watch.

    It is an older model so it was pretty scratched up.

    I took some 3M sanding sticks to it. Between 220 grit up to 320 grit I believe and then some 400 grit sandpaper.

    I sanded all the scratches out of it but also sanded the polish off it too.

    I think it looks good with the matt finish now.

    Put it on a rubber Hadley Roma strap with a little orange stitching.

    Ordered a Tissot rubber strap on eBay coming from Singapore. (Might take 3 weeks to get her). Not sure if it will be authentic strap but it looked ok in the photos.

    What do you guys think?

    Will

    I respect your choice, but I'd have kept the Pathfinder any day, over this TT1.

    Hi Dean.

    All in all I think I spent about an hour on it.

    Looks good but sandpaper I usually associate with wood, I guess you used wet&dry or emery cloth? I'm surprised how course the paper was as I normal start with 800 grit and work up.

    Medium-grit Bufflex wheel would work also.
    1400T/min if you want a "rough" finish as the original one.
    2800 if you want to get a fine bead blasted-like finish.

    With a Bufflex, the whole refinishing job on a TTouch really takes 5 minutes max.

    that looks great...lovely choice..Pathfinder is an awesome outdoor watch but this one is more diverse and can be worn in more environments I think..great work on the re-finishing
