  1. Watchmaking, How To's and Technical Resources
    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...
  2. Russian watches
    I want to refinish a new Amphibian 090 to a fine satin finish (not brushed etc.) My thinking is that it would be quicker to get unifomity to start with a polished case and bring it down instead of going from the matte to satin. Any one done this enough to have an informed opinon? I've done a...
  3. High-end watches
    Recently stumbled upon a post in another forum. There was one person who claimed GO's finishing, especially on their case/deployment clasp(buckle), was just straight up awful and that GO needs to fix it. Some agreed, some didn't, I myself didn't think it was THAT inferior, but I wondered what...
  4. High-end watches
    JLC is one of the high end brands that mass produce their watch (annual production approx. 60,000). I always thought the numbers were little to big for JLC to be considered high end though. Every other element of the brand is fine; it has a prestige(history), amazing and I mean AMAZING...

    Luxury brand with incredible amount of finish, apparently. I'm not sure about the movement. This one is my favorite, and may become my dream watch if its brand and movement info are confirmed: Jesus, look at that. ISNT IT SO BEAUTIFUL whoever knows about this...

    Hi all... So I had an opportunity to go into a High End watch store which stocked amongst other brands, Rolex, Patek Phillipe and IWC. Granted I only had a casual look through the glass and the two that I did hold (Rolex Sub & IWC Portuguese) were covered in plastic, but it did bring to mind...

    I am trying to find out how the titanium is finished on the Skyhawk watches. I have heard that some Citizen Ti watches have “Duratect” but I am not sure what that is. I have also heard some members talk about another (even better?) Citizen Ti treatment. I have looked at the official site...

    Hey All, In the very near future, looking to pull the trigger on a modded monster. Right now thinking about which Mods I would like to have done. I like the look of a blasted band/chassis whether it be it: bead, al-oxide, ti finish, etc....However I'm curious as to how well such a finish does...
