Then a final polish with stainless steel polish, followed by jewellers rouge.

That looks nice, dear Hartley, you obviously did a good job. I keep my eye on Dalvey watches from time to time, and have written a topic about Dalvey in the past. I remember seeing that particular model in a Dalvey sale and I was sorely tempted to get one; I wish I had. The model then available had a white dial, if I remember correctly.:)
