Its a polishing product much like a posh sandpaper but comes in many grades, used for plastics and metals it can polish from something as rough as badgers arse to a mirror finish. some of the in between grades will give you a brushed look but it may be hard to get a uniform effect all over. Google micro mesh and you should get plenty of info. Cheap though it aint!!

They come in several different grits and apply a very even scratch. I got mine from Frei & Borel. They are also useful for touching up the finish of watches that are already have a satin texture. Great on Seamaster bracelets.

I had a Glycine Incursore before that was sandblasted (the are NOT brushed) and it looked like grey titanium. Maybe you can PVD this one. Should look nice with the white dial. Enjoy.
