THE STATEMENTS THAT GO: “UNLESS THE WATCH IS ISSUED BY MILITARY IT IS NOT MILITARY? IS UNTRUE-IT SHOULD BE: “IF THE WATCH IS NOT MILITARY ISSUED” IT IS AN UNISSUED MILITARY WATCH!

HAVE U EVER GOT TIRED THE SAME QUESTION FROM THE SAME PERSON

1AIMG_6016.jpg (221153 bytes)

1A1915-G6.jpg (42006 bytes)

ROCK ALWAYS HAS SOMEONE COMMENTING ON HIS HANDS
BUT, EVEN UNDER THE NAILS, THE 5 TYPES OF CUTTING AND BUFFING COMPOUNDS
TURN THE SKIN AND NAILS BLACK. IT SIMPLY TAKES UP TO 4 WEEKS TO REMOVE
SO IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT WORRIES HIM OR THE FINE WATCH WORKS HE DOES.

1A1915-G3.jpg (35041 bytes)

1A1915-G2.jpg (13853 bytes)

IN FACT, ROCK RESTORES CASES STRAPS BRANDS BRACELETS. MOST OF THE LEATHER IS
USUALLY IN THROW IT AWAY CONDITION. THE LEATHER CONDITIONERS,
MANY MADE UP BY ROCK SINCE 1989, ALSO CONTRIBUTE. HE HATES TO GO OUT TO EAT.
HE HAS TRIED EVERYTHING BUT ACID… ACID IN FACT, ALSO STAINS HIS HANDS. HE
USES NITRIC AND SULFURIC ACIDS AND BLENDS FOR CASE RESTORATION. THE ANSWER
WOULD BE GLOVES– BUT HE TRIED IT. SAYS HE CANNOT FEEL THE METAL OR LEATHER
AS HE WORKS TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE.

1A1915-G4.jpg (33626 bytes)1AIMG_6419.jpg (157162 bytes)

ANOTHER FACT, JUST STRETCHING OLD LEATHER MEANS IT MUST CONDITIONED. MANY OF
THE STRAPS BELOW HAD SHRUNK TO SIZE 5 AND SIX. BUT THE STAINING OF HIS NAILS
ARE DIRECT RESULT OF ELECTRO FORMING AND PLATING. YET, HIS JEWELRY
WAS MADE FOR EVERYONE, BUT A HIGH AMOUNT OF PROMINENT PERSONA
FROM SYLVESTER STALLONE TO BOB BEAMON AND OTHERS CARDED LESS WHAT
HIS HANDS LOOKED LIKE . AND HIS DELIVERY OF TOP NOTCH PRODUCT FOR OVER 25 YEARS PROVIDES THE FACTS THAT THOSE WHOM WRITE OF ROCKS HANDS CANNOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE THOUSANDS OF PHOTOGRAPHED RESTORATIONS, RESTORATIONS THAT HAVE LESS WARRANTY WORK THAN ANY OF THE NEW TOP BRANDS  PRODUCT!

1AIMG_5542.jpg (173546 bytes)1AIMG_2605.JPG (81461 bytes)

SO TAKE THE TIME TO VIEW THE BEAUTIES BELOW. ALL OF THEM HAVE LEATHER 40 TO 110 YEARS OF AGE. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE DECIDING WHICH OF 8000 PHOTOS TO USE HERE SO NO TIME TO WRITE INFO.
