Maybe Jan Ubels will get the watch, maybe not - depends on the movement performance. Polishing I can do myself these days - sparingly and without touching those delicate edges!

   

Here is the spec sheet and instructions....

Kit Contents
1 x Silverline or ProMax Mini Bench Grinder.(both are identical machines from the same factory, just with different labels and boxes)
Voltage: 230v, 50HZ 
Power :120W 
Electric Plug - fitted with a 3 pin UK Plug. An adapter for use in other countries is not supplied and buyers need to fit their own plug / adapter
No Load Variable Speed: +/- 100 - 9900 RPM
Wheel Arbor Diameter :10mm
Width (without flexi shaft attached 230mm)
Height 140mm
Depth 120mm
Shipped Weight +/- 5kgs
Flexible Shaft Collet Diameter: 1/8" (3.2mm). 
1020mm (40") long Flexible Shaft. The flexible drive shaft must not be pulled to tight or over bent as this will cause damage to it. When fitting the flexible shaft please ensure that the internal shaft is fitted into the centre hole of the machine's protruding shaft and not into the side grooves. If not this will prevent the machine / flexidrive shaft from operating correctly. The fastening nut tightens anti-clockwise
3" diameter grinding wheels

* Scratches - scratches in the surfaces may have to be removed first using a series of wet & dry abrasive paper / cloth (eg 500 to 4000 grit) prior to the polishing phase.

Warranty - Silverline - Mini Bench Grinder and Flexible Drive Shaft. Any faults / warranty claims within 30 Days from the Date Of Purchase are dealt with by ourselves. After 30 Days from the date of purchase, any faults / warranty claims are then made direct with the manufacturer as per the details supplied with the kit. The buyer needs to register their machine within 30 Days of Purchase with the manufacturer for their After 30 Day Warranty to be valid, otherwise only a 30 Day Warranty is offered. There is no warranty on the polishing kit consumables.
ProMax - Details are supplied in the box.

* Over bending or pulling the flexible drive shaft too tight, will damage it. If this happens, then both ourselves and the manufacturer will not honour a warranty claim for the damaged flexible drive shaft. Please use the flexible drive shaft with care.

Comes supplied fitted with:
1 x Coarse Grinding Wheel.
1 x Fine Grinding Wheel.

* The grinding wheel needs to be removed and then the polishing mops are attached to the machine's shaft.

Polishing Mop Fitting
Once the bench grinder left side guard and the grinding wheel has been removed (please note that the left hand grinder shaft has a left hand threaded nut, so unscrews clockwise), the polishing mop then slides over the machine shaft and the securing nut and washer is then replaced and tightened (anti-clockwise). The 3" x 1/2" polishing mops cannot be used with the flexible drive shaft.

Tools Required (not supplied)
The following tools are needed to change the polishing wheels / mops.
1 x 17mm or adjustable spanner
1 x Phillips screw driver

Manual - http://www.toolstream.com/media/manuals/...ANPRO1.PDF

* Please note that the mops supplied may vary in appearance compared to those shown in the image, depending on various supplier's stock levels. Different suppliers supply their mops in different colours and with different types of central strengthening discs.

The Kit Also Includes
The Polishing Mops have Enlarged Centre Holes to enable them to slide over the bench grinder shafts
