The Rolex Submariner is one of the most popular watches in existence. Sit back and enjoy how a master watchmaker polishes this watch to restore it's shine and beauty.

You'll take a first-seat look as each scratch on the bracelet, clasp and case are polished away with the utmost care possible to the tune of the original sounds involved in the process.

Even though not everyone is a fan of polishing watches, with purists believing that every scratch and nick becomes an important part of a watch's history, there are customers who just wouldn't wear a watch unless it is polished. After all, part of it comes down to taste. Nevertheless, at a bare minimum, these divided opinions make watch polishing a controversial and oftentimes heatedly debated topic!

No matter on what side of the polishing fence you're on, the utmost care was taken to polish the Rolex Sub (date version, ref 16610) shown on the video, which was already in pretty bad shape to begin with.

You'll also notice that the aluminum bezel of the watch was pretty damaged to begin with. However, the only way to have corrected that problem was by replacing the bezel, which the owner of the watch did not want to do.
