On the other hand, someone who knows how to do a proper refinish vs some idiot who buffs a thing until its melted might do a bit to make it look a bit better.
My dad's watch was mildly refinished.

I asked for this one to have a mild refinish to correct a prior screwup.

Please stop telling people they can't have a little buff from a competent watchmaker. Yes, I know some of them suck. I had one who completely ruined a case, and this was a CMW.
The case can be brightened up without making it look brand-new. My dad's watch wasn't all scratched up until he was much older.
