Think I over-polished my own Calatrava — help!!!

A perfect trio in steel

Finally got there with my perfect 3 to work wherever I need to go. Just waiting for a black alligator strap with contrast stitching so 5212 can work in the office. During my quest to get this small set my AD came up trumps with the rare “misty blue” for m
