Questions about Cape Cod Cloths

Post by SeikoJohn on Fri Aug 25 2017, 19:09

I have just bought myself a cheapy non runner



The crystal is a mess but I plan on replacing it . The auction states a non runner but will have a look when it arrives even if I can not get it working i can buy a replacement movement for £4

Obviously one of the first jobs will be stripping it down and put it in the ultrasonic cleaner but back to the title question ... Cape cod cloths I have seen them about but never used one . Are they good for cleaning up stainless steel bracelets or are there alternatives out and about ? Anybody tried them ? ?
cheers John

i have never used them, but never heard anything bad about them either.....however i think they are more for maintaining good condition rather than improving poor condition, i may be wrong though, but there usualy is no shortcut to quality IMO

I was thinking more along the line of using the cape cod to clean the bracelet rather than trying to improve it . This watch is what it is a cheap daily beater I just want to clean it all up rather than have another person's DNA near my skin Mad

an ultrasonic is the answer or white soap and a tooth brush

Looking at the watch I think it may be requiring both the above methods lol!

you may be surprised just how good you can get it looking, the crystal is 90% of it

There will be questions about the crystal once the watch arrives , mainly on how to order a new one
