  16. After the "Different qualities of steel" post I thought I'd add this. The watch case is Chinese stainless of unknown specification. As you can see, the finish is very rough, as I would call "straight off the grinder". I want a polished brushed finish, so here we go. First picture, as received. You can see the grind marks running from top to bottom, uniformly across the case edge. second, after 10 minutes polishing with first, coarse, then medium Scotchbrite pads. I polish across the grind marks, not with them. finally the desired effect, finished off first with a polish of "The Pink Stuff", then with a well used Cape Cod cloth soaked in Brasso. The equipment, that took about half an hour. It will take around two - two and a half hours to complete the watch. Normally I would have the strap off, and the watch in a case holder. With the exception of the Cape Cod cloths, everything is available out of bargain shops, The Range etc. Reference was made to some Chinese stainless having a "milky" finish. I know from experience that this case would polish to high shine mirror finish. It is also possible to remove and refinish quite severe scratches from stainless using the same products, but this does take a bit of confidence, and more importantly, practice patience and experience.

  21. Choosing a Grand Seiko for Monday watch. Also I select a handmade dark blue leather band from Aug Leather to be combined with the watch. Love the cool tones. Have a great Monday!

  31. Well, after arriving yesterday, I had plenty of playtime with this new to collection Eterna 1948 heritage watch. It's probably the last purchase of the year and I was very fortunate in purchasing it from fellow member, @redmonaco, who has been particularly understanding of my circumstances and was very patient and supportive throughout. I know that he had posted it on this part of the forum previously so some of you might already be familiar with it. It is a Swiss automatic 25 jewels with a Sellita Sw300 movement which is extremely smooth. The case is 40 mm and I believe the depth to be 9.5mm, so a very streamlined watch which sits perfectly on my wrist, and it is extremely comfortable to wear. It is easy to read the time on a very clear sunburst dial and with only a date complication at 3 o'clock. Perhaps my only gripe, and it is just a personal thing is that the hands are silver against the "sunburst" background and I usually prefer a different colour hands to dial, but that is really a minor point. The crystal is domed sapphire crystal which again helps the view. The movement is quite clear and can be seen clearly through the "exhibition" backplate. It is WR to 50m and is complimented with a genuine crocodile leather strap. Although, I have traditionally, not shown much interest in the "dress/office"watch category this was one that I just couldn't resist. Eterna have always been known for the quality of their watches and this certainly doesn't disappoint. Good quality at fair prices and a watch that I am sure will get much "wear time" The problem now will be how to get it off my wrist later. Have a good day all

  32. Well I’m back after having had the op which they tell me was a success but I am in some almighty pain. This watch has now been through everything with me although I did have to take it off prior to surgery but it has been a godsend . Hopefully I’ll be back into the swing of things over the coming days and looking forward to our daily posts.

  34. Big new arrival today With the blue dial I think I prefer the Yacht-Master to the sub. 1mm thinner, more unusual, more blue. Wish Rolex kept the open 6 and 9 on the calendar wheel though

  37. Rolex GMT Master II. 16710 'Y' series. Cal. 3185, 31 jewel auto movement with 50hr power reserve. This model has the drilled lugs which makes removing the bracelet a doddle and prevents scratching of the undersides. Bought from a fellow member in 2012, this piece dates to 2003. The original watch was supplied with a black bezel insert which was subsequently changed (before my ownership) for the much preferable Pepsi one. As a pilot's watch, rather than a diver's, the bezel is bi-directional to make setting different time zones easier. This came as a complete set with all the boxes, papers and service history. Not worn very much, it probably only sees the light of day once or twice a year, and as it never, ever leaves the house, is in mint condition. On a personal note, I think the older Rolex models with their narrower, aluminium bezel inserts are far preferable to the later ceramic inserts, both in colour and looks. How it looks with the original bezel insert.

  38. Oh dear -- my activities on threads like this seem to have been prescribed in the "watchers" thread For @Perlative Cernometer, this is at least German -- I did classy yesterday And, as I now seem responsible for @JayDeep's preparedness for economic activity -- it will be entirely my fault if his family starves The "backside" . . . And, for @CB200, both photos were taken this morning!
