how did you cover the crystal? masking tape?

I want to polish my band and I think that would be easy enough

Looks good. IMO, polishing the case is best left to the pro's and should be done ever so lightly, if at all, when the watch is serviced. Every time you use a Cape Cod cloth or the dremel, it removes metal which can not be replaced. Just keep that in mind as you grind away!

how much metal do you think it removes? people make like it removes soo much that after 10 years you will have no metal left.

the amount removed is if done properly is insignificant. yes it removes some but the amount is microns small.

what about car detailers that buff your paint to make it shine again using a rotary buffer and how thin the paint is applied on a car.

my 2 cents rant
