So, I thought it may be cool to make the watch look like it had perhaps been found in a swamp (before someone added a perforated black leather strap).
It came out just right: completely gross.
So, cool, cool. Kinda gnarly and rugged. But, really, so very very gross and dirty that it left a mark.
So, I kicked around the yard & house taking care of chores before it was time for an intermission from disgusting and grody things... Time for clean-and-pretty...
So, I thought I’d experiment with seeing how clean I could get it without using polish of any kind. Instead, I used a little white vinegar and about 30 minutes, rinsed it, and rubbed it dry with a dry cotton cloth:
All-in-all it once again matches the luster of the stock buckle.
Interesting experiment that was pleasantly undone...
