@TheDukeOfIce not quite what you were asking, but, the black MM had some marks throughout so I polished it using Mothers and a Dremel with a felt tip. Didn’t spend a whole lot of time on it. The blue on the right of the pics is original plating. I ended up with less scratches, but noticeably hazy compared to OEM that has a mirror like finish. I’m not sure if I really even removed the original plating in the process. I also don’t have first Hand experience of polishing from a Brushed finish. It’s currently in the hands of a real professional getting cerakoted.

"didnt spend a whole lot of time with it..." uhhh in my dictionary just taking the time to put a felt tip on a dremel qualifies as spending a lot time! But to be fair, a detailed polishing on my watches consists of using the bottom of my t-shirt to wipe them up real nice (that last part is intended to be read in your best Cousin Eddie voice)

There is a manually polished yellow MM on Ebay. I think it looks horrible.
I wonder if that's the same guy that had that watch listed at least twice before that. But his other listing said that he does his own home polishing job on all of his titanium watches. But yeah it looks terrible. If it's the same one I think it's sold twice around 7 or $800 but then for some reason was relisted
