Nice article, people wonder why a complete refurbish on a watch costs so much. I use two step white/red rouge. Red for really scuffed up and scratched and finish with white for high gloss.

No, not that it is available to me. Years ago I started working at a jewelers, the red/white "rouge" as its called, was what I learned with, mostly karat gold, rings, bracelets. The red can damage if used to excess.

Thanks DJT2, but it is Colin who has the knowledge, expertise and he did all the work........ I'm just the messenger-boy here, but I'm glad I forwarded the link....  ;)

BTW, instead of a lath, I'm using a polishing machine, something like the one on the picture, but much, much older. 1960's or so :)
