gold-plated steel geometric case

The case initially had faded gold-plating & light corrosion spots when we acquired this watch. The case, together with the bracelet & clasp have been stripped, cleaned & re-electroplated in gold. They now have an even matte gold-plating coverage & the corrosion indentations on the case were covered/filled-in during the process.
