This is fun!

P.S. Does anyone have the strap number. I placed a similar style but the original deployment clasp does not flare at the lug.

I use wet/dry 400 grit sandpaper and a straight edge to “brush” the case. Crystal removed of course.

600 grit for a finer brushed finish.

Straps get the same treatment making sure all strokes are parallel. I finish the strap off with scotch bright.

Ok, thank you very much.

And to do a mirror polish on the edges, how are you doing ?

Fantastic case work Geoff. Change the title to 0674 so if anyone looking for this watch and what can be done finds this thread.

Ooooops, typo, shouldn’t post at midnight!

Edges sanded first to remove major dings with wet dry 400, 600, 1000 grit. Then polished with metal polish “weenol” and Dremel. Try to keep the edge from rounding with the polish wheel.

Then the brushed finish is applied with parallel strokes as described.

See this article about the Glycine airman restoration I did in 2006:

Love the Omega 300 and a fantastic job in the restoration too. Such a simple strong design. Added to my wishlist. [EDIT] Just seen the prices of the Omega 300, I think it will be staying on my wishlist for a very long time.

https://www.thewatchsite.com/34-watchma ... ics/306546

I never see that is possible to put a dead module is a solution and after it runing, is it really possible ?

Hey,

Actualy I renovate my 0634 and I would like to know how is possible to do the circular satin on the push button as the photo ?
I saw that you did that on the case back to your Glycine and Seamaster 300.

Just get the pin out of the watch...clamp it in your dremel and hold some 600-1200 grade sandpaper to it. :-D

Thank you Kasper, it works perfectly :Prost:

Before, a hold mirror polish maybe during a service

I put the button pusher on the dremel drill and I used sand paper k600 and speed 4

And the result :mega:

Sorry Pulsar77,

Was in Beijing and for some reason DWF forum was blocked by the Chinese.

Jasper nailed it, or rather chucked it :scratch:

No problem, but thank you for your sharing

Yes, but I use white vinegar. Milder then the HCl. Also, while good at removing oxidation and copper sulphate residue it can remove any remaining contact under the corrosion resulting in an open circuit.

Also, do not immerse the LED or LCD module.

Another concern is neutralizing after acid application. I use baking soda and water for the neutralizein* followed by a water wash, then isopropanol followed by drying.

Sometimes a dental pick for GENTLY removing corrosion an/or fibre glass pen.

After all the above is completed I coat the circuits with DeOxit red; a deoxidizing oil which also protects and is non conductive. Especially good for creeping underneath ICs.
