10:10 Watch Repair

Patek is in the details, so I decided to clean up a couple. Clean dial and markers, service the movement and remove all the gunk, and most importantly, remove the faux rotor screw that was mangled and had glue on it, and refinish it. A black polish to the stainless screw, then brush finish and rhodium plate the surround. The end result is much closer to the gen rotor. Yep, it's not much, but one more detail is cleaned up.

Looks very smart. Being a novice of movements and anything technical would you have a before and after shot.

I only have the QC pic which isn't high res. You can see the glue and some tool marks, but it's hard to make out the rough finishing. If you have one, take a close look and you'll see what I mean.

Here's a pic from RWI. AFAIK all the rotor screws look like this:
