A few pics of my latest project. This Hublot watch is made of both stainless and titanium parts. Challenging and yes, a lot of sharpening! Came to me in pretty rough shape. Cleaned it up best I could and the deep relief work covered most of the dings! The idea for the bezel design came from Sam's Ornate Scrollwork book which I refer to often.

Great work as usual David. The closeups really show your clean and uniform cuts. I think its that cleanliness and smooth control that makes your jobs stand out. Will you please do me a favor and show a pic of your gravers you use next to something for size reference? My tiny cuts look like I used a hatchet (a small one) ! Thanks for posting, Mark

Thank for your nice comments. speedy6 here is a pic when I first started cutting the titanium bezel. It shows the 105 graver that I used.
