Very clean stitchy!  Is the Cape Cod cloth abrasive in some nature that it helps polish watches?  Is there some sort of pixie dust you add that helps :)

post #23583 of 35666
Thanks!

It does seem to have some abrasives in it, and they did not recommended for use on any type of brushed metal. And yes, it does look like pixie dust. It also has silver polish or something like that absorbed into it. It's very moist and oily, and it makes your hands black.

After you use it, you need to buff it with a regular polishing cloth, and then soak it or rub it in some jewelry cleaning solution, and then buff it again with the regular polishing cloth to get all the polish from the Cape Cod cloth out. Totally worth it though.

It should be noted though, that it really is only meant for small surface type scratches. It will not remove any types of dings, dents, or deeper scratches.

Basically, it does not have a factory finish obviously, but it does a very nice job restoring it to a much prettier state than before. I can see it as something I would use often to touch up the watch and keep it looking nice and fresh.

So, I'm a IWC guy :). You can try the test here. Tell me what you think!

 

Mine came out as IWC too.  How many other possible outcomes are there?  I went back and entered completely different (and in my opinion, shallow moronic douchebag stereotype) choices, and it gave me...Omega.  Which seemed a bit odd.

Now, it's true that I have been staring at an IWC a lot lately (I stare at a lot of things, it just happens to have featured recently), so it seemed a little uncanny.  But the great irony to me is that my only "proper" watch is...an Omega...

^ those questions seem goofy. I love to ride my bike and have since I was a child, but I don't think hipster, fixies are "stylish". People go "Oh" when you tell them the brand? Like "Oh, WOW! That's a something something" or "Oh. What the hell is that.. never heard of it."

anyway, I came out IWC as well! haha

I got a JLC Master Control and round 2 was a Rolex DJ....they only thing I changed was caring if people knew it was expensive or something like that.

post #23588 of 35666
well, that gives me some hope that IWC is not behind this excersize in stupidity.

Mine was an IWC Portugese. Coincidence?

Well the pickup was as smooth as can be.  A nice clubhouse lunch, a round of golf on a perfect afternoon right alongside the Niagara river.  And a cool new watch to take home. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Epic win!

Now just post the pics and nobody gets hurt.

biggrin.gif  It will have to be crappy cell phone pics until Monday - I'm taking the rest of the week off, and my camera is at the office.

 

Stitchy - lookin' real good bro.  I just love the red accents on that piece.

Possibly; I have strong opinions on the subject!

Unfortunately, they led it to believe that I would be compelled to buy some kind of ETA-movement IWC, which is ample enough evidence for me that the test is deeply flawed.

Tried it twice, with very opposite answers. Got IWC first, then Rolex.
