Notes From The Cleaning Crew
Very curious to hear from the group on the general subject of watch cleaning and polishing. What do you use and where do you use it? Any special tricks you learned over the years? Any mistakes you've made?
I lean towards divers and admit to taking a toothbrush and mild soap to my stainless bracelets now and then (amazing the amount of grime they can collect through hot Summer day).
For the crystals and polished cases I've found this chammy-like cloth included with a tool kit I purchased (can't recall from who) works wonders--much better than those wispy swatches they include with your sun glasses. I almost wonder if it's treated with something (it works that well) but I suppose not. I'm aware of certain Jewelers Cloths but I'm not sure of the abrasives they contain. Any suggestions there?
Finally, who will admit to running their NATOs and Zulus through the rinse cycle in their dishwasher? I hope I'm not going to be first!
