Inspired by Roland Murphy's work, I found an orphan movement about a year ago, and went to work.

The case and dial are of Chinese manufacture. The hands were sourced from Otto Frei and modified to fit the size 10 minute and hour posts.
I polished screw heads and other parts, (regulating armature, some wheels, etc, ), then polished them using various pastes via old methods to a mirror finish.
Blued them using a brass holder and shavings.
It was a journey into some old craft for me, and I really enjoyed it.

Sorry for any smudges..I didn't take time to clean it up much prior to taking the photos.
There are also some scratches around the case lugs where I had a metal band with curved ends attached for awhile.
I find that the silicon band on it now is very comfortable

Best regards to all

Randy
