Final photo, taken yesterday evening, of my C7 MkI BRG before dispatching it this morning to foreign shores (I must be bonkers letting it go, but I'm sure it's going to a good home).

Safe journey.

My wrist is calling for its long lost friend! I'll give it a great home! Wipe it down daily, use masking tape when changing straps/bracelets without quick release thing-a-ma-jig, get it serviced every few years by CWL themselves, and best of all, I have already named it . . . I tried to to type C7 BRGLE to a friend who is into CWL and autocorrect put it as "C7 Bugle" so, the name is Bugle! Or Beagle. Haven't quite decided. Maybe Bugle the Beagle.

Thanks! Will post pix as soon as it comes in!

Lovely decoration to the movement.

Would a polish with some Cape Cod sort the scratches?

Hmm, I never considered it. I'd always thought Cape Cod cloth was used only on brushed steel and not highly polished finishes.

Other way around. If you use it on brushed steel, it will buff out the brushed look and turn it polished. Only use it on polished steel; great for getting out scuffs etc. Don't use on gold plating either--will rub the gold off from what I hear.
