This lovely classic Air King was delivered for assessment & rectification of the case and bracelet. Upon initial assessment there are multiple scratches and marks evident on the polished bezel, brushed clasp and oyster bracelet as well as a number of chips in the sapphire crystal.
The Air King as delivered, with marring and marks on the stainless steel case, bezel and bracelet from daily use.
Watch this space as I work on the exterior surfaces to restore the lustre from new.
I commenced work on the polished bezel & case sides, restoring as much lustre as I could whilst gently removing the marring & scratches from years of use.
The bracelet & clasp are brushed from factory, however to remove the scratches I was required to polish these areas (which in turn makes them shiny). I reinstated the factory brushing after the polish phase.
After polishing & washing, I applied a ceramic coating to protect the case, bezel, bracelet and crystal. Here's a pic of the first layer curing to the sapphire crystal.
