What is the sandpaper grit to make brush finishing on watches like Rolex?

Question

Hey guys, do you guys know what is the sandpaper grit to make brush finishing like the one on Rolex Submariner? I've been trying various stuffs like Scotchbrite, Japan Sabitoru abrasive block but it looked nothing like the Rolex finishing. I know Rolex uses the Bergeon Abrasive Wheel but I don't have the machine only Dremel. So I want to what sandpaper grit is the closest to the Sub. Thank you!

Get some self adhesive 3M tape and make some buff sticks. Don't use a mop as you'll round the edges. Get the equivalent of 200, 400 and 800 grit (I can't remember the micron equivalent, so look it up) and see how you get on by experimenting on scrap cases.
