Orient Star Somes collaboration "before" pics (and "after" pics)

...it just needs a good case cleaning and the fine scratches polished out and maybe have the strap cleaned and conditioned. But for comfortably under $200 shipped I think it will be well worth it.

Before pics:










This is the first green dial I've owned since the Fossil I had in high school over 10 years ago. Normally I'd replace the strap on a well used watch but the Japanese made Somes strap is part of the package, they're very stiff when new but this one is broken in and VERY comfortable.

I'll post pics when the cleaning is complete.

Very nice. I'm just now starting to get into polishing (via dremel) some of my older vintage pieces to get them in better shape. I've found it's not as easy as it looks, but with practice, I think I'll be able to have my pieces looking new again.

Case cleaned, polished and brushed. Strap is buffed with leather wipes and a clean cloth. Three little tiny nicks on the inside part of the bezel (@ :30, :33, :38) you can see them in the first pic, but it's not bad at all. All together - $225.
