'kay, for those of you who don't know me, I'm "Watch_CraZy" and - AND - ...
... "Fairly_NutZ" about "Fliegers" ...
.. like my Steinhart Ø=47mm "Beobachtungsuhr" ...

Anyway, I want to try a Watchadoo bracelet on my "Nav. B-Uhr" ...
... but I'm NOT certain about that the "brushed" version will work on my "Flieger" ...

____________________________________________

My main concern is that the brushed finish on the "Watchadoo" is, well, too rough! ...
... like how it lookZ in the following 'Tuna Can' pic from edscorner1.blogspot.com/ ...

... So, do you good WIS think I should order the polished version ...
... and, then, buff it up a bit with a Scotchbrite Pad? ...

I like the brushed one to be honest.

Well, for what it's worth it, might be easier to "soften" up the roughly brushed bracelet with a scotch brite padthan to brush up a "shiney" one.

I know ... I know! ... exasperating, isn't it! ...

... FYI, another pic from that same site shows a MUCH smoother brushing ...
... which DOES look MUCH closer to what I want! ...

Then you know what they say,



" Adapt, Improvise and Overcome "



Might be even easier to brush up a bracelet that is shiney than to soften up a non-existant, roughly brushed one.

Confusion is my middle name.

Or am I thinking of Confucious.

But that's not my middle name.

If I would have seen that bracelet, my son might NEVER have snagged the SK009 from me, LOL! It's been surgically attached to his wrist 24/7 since I gave it to him, so I guess I'm OK with it.

My Orange Monster may get an upgrade though... Very nice bracelet. I'd definitely

I love the Fleiger on an Oxblood leather strap, though. I hope to get one with an ETA/Unitas next year. Maybe from Tattoo Chef's buddy, Wilson Watchworks.
