It is important when removing patina / cleaning the case, to remain aware that polishing will remove brushed and blasted finishes; though there are ways of cleaning without doing this, so it needn’t stop you going ahead and forcing that patina. We will touch on these methods of cleaning later on.

Now your watch is nice and clean, you are ready to take the plunge and create your new patina. For most of the above, I would recommend using a sealable Tupperware container, as some of these products are quite pungent and you may well be asked to leave the house when working at your kitchen sink.

Household Ammonia – The fumes from Ammonia can be overpowering, so best to do this one outside somewhere. The best method I have found for Ammonia is to place a piece of cotton wool in each corner of your Tupperware container and place your freshly cleaned watch in the centre.

Swimming Pool / Chlorinated water – One of my favourites! I swim several times a week, so a few of my watches have been patinated this way. This method (if you can get in the pool a lot) gives very even patina and you can keep doing it until the watch gets to the shade you desire.

OCEAN X SHARKMASTER600

LOVE IT , WELL PRESENTED WATCH IN ITS PACKAGING. NO FUSS . WHAT I EXPECTED, WILL BUY AGAIN FROM SERIOUS WATCHES , QUALITY WATCH AT AFFORDABLE PRICE. WELL DONE ,,,,

Great Watch, Great Overseas Buying Experience

Shipped quickly and arrived fast from Netherlands to the US.

Watch is beautiful and subtle. Changing the strap can really change how dressy it is or not. As a con, the movement is super loud and clunky but I would imagine it's a workhorse. My Orient diver watch's movement makes a lot less noise but perhaps it's because of the chunkier case on that one.

I still love it, the watch is a great value.

Great experience, great Watch!

Not the first purchase and the shop delivers, as always! Immediate shipment, great delivery speed, superb packaging and nice watch of course! Thanks a lot!:)

Spinnaker Bradner black

Not expensive but stylish watch!
Sits very comfortably on the wrist and provided with good quality soft strap.

El rayo verde

Espectacular reloj, y magnífico color, me recuerda a un fenómeno natural que se da en muy pocas ocasiones, incluso menos que las auroras boreales, el fenómeno es el rayo verde, se produce en el horizonte a la caída del Sol, pero en muy raras ocasiones, dado que se tienen que cumplir una serie de acontecimientos excepcionales, pues éste color de mi SHARKMASTER hace honor a ése fenómeno, muy contento con el tamaño, calidad y originalidad, gracias Seriuswatches.
