Re: CWL of the day

I picked up a white dialled C6 Kingfisher recently and when it arrived it was not in bad nick, but not exactly great either. That was ok as I happened to have a spare C6 case floating around that I'd picked up some time back. It had some shiny marks and light scratches on the bead blasted case, so I thought I'd clean it up. As I don't have the equipment to bead blast a case, I thought that rather than brush finish it, I'd polish it and see what it looked like. Unsurprisingly it's not dissimilar to a Trident case, but I kept the bead blasted finish on the metal parts of the bezel.

After a quick swap over of the movement I fitted an old style C60 bracelet (brushed and polished finish) rather than sticking with the blasted/polish style C6 bracelet. Here it is - just a little different to the usual white C6.

It's certainly better than the ratty case it came with...
I've actually put it back on the brown Di Modell strap I put on it after I received it. I say brown, but it's so dark it's almost black.

Probably like me for fear of damaging the very prone bezel sadly.
Lovely watches though and probably going to bring it to the Morgan Factory Tour.
