Tool for polishing watches


Question

Hello

I would like to learn to polish watch cases and bring them back to life. Would something like Dremel 3000 do the job? I guess the number of RPM is important to be able to do the final polish properly. I prefer to do everything I can by hand and the last part to finish with a rotational tool.

Thanks.

I do use a drummel tool for stainless steel watch cases as it will remove all scratches. I have some YouTube videos on this from years ago.  Use red paste and rpm around 15, which I assume is 1500rpm. Do not do this with anything but stainless steel and mask all other areas of the watch. Done this many many times.

You can do righteous work with one of those tools. I prefer a bench polishing lathe (I can hold the piece with two hands and use larger buffing wheels), but I find I use a handheld tool often, too. Clamping the piece in a bench vise helps avoid slips and increase control.
