    What I`ve tried to show here is just how easy it is to refinish an acrylic crystal. The difference it makes to a watch is huge, especially if the watch has a clean dial.

    Have you tried this on an acrylic crystal? Sounds a bit like overkill to me, but it might have some value for steel case refinishing. Getting the final mirror finish on polished stainless is quite...

    Doesn't surprise me. Some of the watches I`ve worked on have been filthy, but owners don't seem to realise. Never actually considered a watch as a bio-hazard but I guess it's feasible.
