Natural aging takes time my friend.

This is the chamfers freshly done:

This is how it looks after a everyday use for a half year as a toolwatch. Im working as a constructor/carpenter so you can imagine what the watch has gone through:

Yes ofcourse it works. Just look at the gen pieces yeah the case got a few nags here and there but theyre not that visible unless looking at a macro picture. The edges are by far softer now compared to when i first got the midcase. I can soften the edges by polishing the case. Ive done it on a 5513 i had but im determined that this one is only going to get natural patina. I build the watch as NOS condition so that i can enjoy the watch as it is and have a history behind every single scratch.
