I am looking for some sage advice on cleaning watch cases and bracelets.
Over the years I have collected a number of watches, some very cheap quartz pieces and other slightly more expensive purchases such as a few 50’s Seamaster’s and my work horse, the Tissot V8.
Unfortunately, due to my job and hobbies a couple of them are starting to look a bit grubby with grime between the links, around the crystal and a few scratches to the case and bracelet.
I am pretty hands on and would really like to have a go at cleaning them up myself. However, before diving in and ruining my watches in an attempt to clean them up, I wanted to do my research.
Could anyone tell me what are the best, most appropriate methods /materials to use when cleaning watch cases and bracelets particularly those made of stainless steel and how would you approach the different finishes, for example a brushed finish.
