Thread: Here I go again with the Doxa

    Here I go again with the Doxa

    Hey Cats,

    I'm done working it over I promise except for a replacement crystal (although not really necessary, mine has some chips and plenty of scratches but the watch is still water resistant when I tested it).

    Hit the crystal with 6 coats of hard lacquer to improve clarity.

    Studying pics online compelled me to give it another try with a different grain of paper and adjustment of pressure when working the case.

    Threw on a rubber strap to get the feel.







    Peace,
    Preston

    Cats are rarely impressed with anything that doesn't involve a can opener.

    There is a noticeable drop-off in interest from the first pic to the second (extra treats would have helped). I've however have followed these threads from start to finish (treats wouldn't have hurt me none either).
