Re: Beat up Seamaster Bond
In Response To: Beat up Seamaster Bond ()


You're sort of in the position of someone who buys an all terrain vehicle, wants to use it for what it was designed, and yet wants to keep the vehicle new looking. There's nothing unusual about this, but it is very difficult.

Derek has info on this sight about products available from Omega that will help polish your steel case and band back up. I suggest you look into one of these. Wait until your watch is a few years old before you spend money on a factory refurbish.

For what it's worth, I wear my ti Seamaster Chrono daily onboard the aircraft carrier, and it shows. This was a choice I made. Like you, I couldn't see buying one of the toughest watches on the market and then baby-ing it.
