    Default Polishing a gen Daytona

    He did a nice job except he may have overpolished the bezel and rounded out the numbers a tad. Still a great tutorial on how to polish a Daytona.

    My 087F was in much worse condition than the Daytona in this vid and I was very fortunate to find someone with mad skillz make it new again. It couldn't have turned out any nicer and I couldn't be more thankful.

    If anybody attempted to re-finish the patina on any of my gens I would go homicidal axe-wheeling maniac on them in a split second. Service - yes. Polishing - hell, no!
    Every single scratch is part of that particular watch's history - hands-off territory...

    Quite amazing! Does anyone know if the clear tape at ~2:40 was put on to protect whilst polishing or, as seen seconds later, to remove dust, powder, etc. when the tape is removed?

    I was going to say, don't polish in the first place... but those results are hard to argue with. Damn.

    Interesting to see the skills of someone polishing a watch.
    Even though I am not a fan of re-polished watches. I think you either like to see the history of your watch or you dont :-)
