    Who I am and What I do

    Hey guys,
    I am Jon, (obviously) and I live in the woods in Ohio (hence the name, and the green man avatar). I love to work with steel, and metals, and my first undergraduate degree is in fine arts (illustration). I love to refinish steel, and make things look and function better.

    That being said, I love making watches shine, and consider it a challenge to make a rep look as close to gen as possible, and also to make a gen look like it just came out of its box for the first time. Here is a list of mods that I can currently do:
    • Brush and polish any bracelet from any maker (I have researched the methods of the various companies and understand how the finishes differ) This includes: Rolex, Omega, AP, Breitling, Hublot, and just about everything else
    • Refinish case and bezel
    • Regrind bezel scallops (remove those unsightly rep grind marks)
    • Improve SEL recession
    • Regrind-reshape watch case
    • Reshape crown guards
    • Bevel watch case and/or bracelet
    • Mod 904L bracelet SELs to fit other models
    • Paint mods (I have done subs, GMTs, DSSDs, and even Explorer 2's)

    I am always trying new stuff, so this list will expand in the future.... Stay tuned!!!

    What I do not do:
    • I am NOT a watchmaker. I am NOT a watchmaker, I am NOT a watchmaker
    • I cannot waterproof your watch, service it, mess with the movement, change the crystal, etc.
    • I will not undertake any such projects, however, I do have relationships on the forum and can help you to coordinate with someone who can.
    • Basically, I will not do anything that involves opening your watch

    What is included in brushing and polishing a bracelet?

    Disassembly of all non-permanent parts. Refinish those parts, ultrasonically clean, reassemble, final finish, Lubricate, clean excess, take pics!

          I have seen Jon's work first hand and it is top notch.His attention to detail has made him a perfectionist. Hands down..the best restoration case and bracelet service I have ever seen using only top quality materials and machinery to achieve superb results very similar to procedures used by Rolex, Omega,Breitling, Panerai,Cartier etc..
