The ‘Bomber’ Ages - And Then Youths!

Post by Nuvolari » April 26th 2020, 8:49pm

It could be the drink, or the smoke, or maybe even the shelter-in-place but for whatever reason I found it impossible to NOT fuck around with adding a little pantina to the Lords’ Bronze Blue Bomber that has been so graciously left in my loving custody.

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...

Image

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...

"interesting". Can You now please remove the bezel ring and make sure to get all that vinegar our there? Just asking, of course, it is Your watch. :mrgreen:
