        If I recall you need to take the green one though, not any scotch bright

                  Remove the bracelet off of the watch. Get something to level off the sides to recent scratching the sides of the links. Use double sided tape to stick the bracelet onto the surface. Do light, straight brushing with the 3M. Any deeper scratches, use a sandpaper, then finish off with the 3M.

                    Do you use a 3M pad or Scothbrite? Which color? Thank you

                        3M Sandpaper Pad
                        Green Scotch Brite Pad.

                        This is the homemade way. The gen-like brushing consists of multiple variations/combinations of Bergeron polishing wheels designed for Rolex, adding a "white" look on the steel.

                          The cheapest way without going with Bergeron wheels use the dremel attachments. I use this kit

                          https://www.amazon.com/Dremel-EZ684-...a-449702681479


                          it creates this "white" brush style. Just set the dremel to the lowest setting and go super lightly in one direction.

                            I only use scotchbrite as the Dremel is too speedy...I feel I can control the process better with brushing by hand...I made a wooden holder which is adjustable

                              For the finish I can recommend Gerryflex abrasive block „medium“. You‘ll get bright white shine on the surface.
