Thoughts on polishing

Nov 13, 2023,12:36 PM

I'm considering a first generation Overseas. I had the chance to try this on eon over the weekend and noticed that the case and bracelet have been polished. It was serviced in Geneva in 2022 at which time a polishing of the case may have been performed. I am interested in thoughts/feedback (pro/con) on polished a vintage piece. Thanks for looking and thank you in advance!

... to me it looks like all the case angles are gone. It's up to you but for me (judging from the pic, of course) it's a hard pass.

Thanks for the observations and feedback. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to take closer look I have to agree that the polishing is quite extreme. ...  

The bezel is a tell-all

on the OS, so easy to round off with enthusiastic polishing. Case brushing looks very nice.
