This Panerai Daylight belongs to a fellow watch collector and was brought in last Friday.
As you can see it had a nasty dent right on the edge of middle case.
I made a promise to publish photos of the watch before and after polishing, so here they are, for your enjoyment.
The entire polishing of the middle case (body) was done by hand using a metal file and various grades of sand paper and took less than 15 minutes, including bezel polishing.
Panerai watches are made of quality steel and respond well to both machine and hand polish.
