If you have purchased a pair of hands from our online store or eBay shop then we offer a fettle and bluing service which can be purchased here.
To fettle and blue a pair of hands profesionally takes time and experience.
The blank hands are shaped on the edges with needle files to create more of a 3d efect rather than a clean cut piece of steel.
This gives the hand design a whole different look.
Hands are then highly polished and heated to a high temperature which changes the surface colour of the steel brown, purple then blue.
The contrast in colour from purple to blue creates a lovely looking finish which enables the hands to be more readable on either a silvered or brass dial.
Please note this product is a service and the pictures are an example of what the services offers.
Only purchase if you require hands to be fettled and blued.
