Doing my own brushed finish

watchmaking

#1

The one watch they offer is polished finish only, but I sort of have a brushed metal fetish. WANT EVERYTHING BRUSHED

Is it possible to do it myself? Don’t mind ruining the case (of course nicer if that’s not the case). I suppose I should get a grinding wheel?

That could be risky. But if you are determined to try, go get some satin finish buff wheel, like this one: https://www.esslinger.com/bergeon-satin-finishing-polishing-wheel-4-various-grits-matte-brushed-finish/

sounds interesting if you ignore the risk. i would expect needing to rebuff the whole case from ground up. it never works with just one try. always one scratch too many.

still though, if you decide to bite the bullet, i’ll be eagerly waiting for your result
