Thanks for posting that.

I am surprised some tape of some sort wasn't used to mask off bezel (in this example).
I'm thinking I probably would use at least masking tape for that 'just in case' event.

I'm now off to google polishing paste :thumbup:

I use Dialux green polishing compound (Amazon) . For the masking tape i do/would put some on the bezel & crystal as a precaution .

I would just like to add however , i would only use the dremel if you are confident in your own abilities , if you are not then please go to a professional .
