A flawless finish
The polisher works at the end of the manufacturing chain of metal parts used in watchmaking and jewellery making. To give these parts a beautiful sheen, he carries out a number of extremely high precision polishing procedures. He removes any roughness and residue from soldering from watch casings, bracelets and clasps. Satin-finishing gives surfaces a matt look, and determines which angles should remain prominent. He inspects the size and aesthetics of the parts. Finally, he washes, rinses and dries the parts using specialised products.
Where does he work? In polishing workshops or production workshops of the watchmaking industry. Sitting at a workbench and wearing protective gloves, he manually finishes small parts.
