Hi everyone,

My post relates to a Tudor submariner 7928 which I bought with polished lugs. My question is, should I just leave as a polished case or return to as original condition as possible? Look forward to any thoughts.

Thanks

Paul.

since it was polished, probably loose the bevelling,.. Might as well get it properly polished again to get the closest orig look..

If there's plenty of meat left, a good watchmaker can restore the bevels effectively.

Over-polished lugs with freshly cut bevels can just end up looking odd.

Thanks for your thoughts. The lugs are pretty meaty and would be able to take a bit of refinishing.
