bergeon 7007-22 vs rodico, dial cleaning?

#1 Post by semroc » Sun Feb 10, 2019 8:23 am

Anyone have any experience with this bergeon product? 7007-22. I was reading in the Omega forum how rodico leaves a film on the dial, and it's not recommended. Might try this bergeon product. Kinda spendy though. Thanks.

Some dials are forgiving and touching it with rodico will not show.. if you trying to clean a glossy black dial a fancy tacky stick will not save you. If the dial is delicate I will get a clean piece of rodico and roll into a fine point and literally snipe the tiny specks of crud off the dial without making much if any contact (this is after using a blower of course). If the dial is matte white go ahead and rapid fire the rodico or tacky stick because it is not going to show. I was given one of the tacky sticks and found it to be a comfortable way to remove specks off of non-delicate dials. I did not think the stick was a game changer. If you want to try the stick go for it..

No problem Semroc.. I see this product being useful (time saving) if you are doing short jobs all day long. Such as crystal only, cell change with case & bracelet clean, quartz movement swap etc.. its just a quick and easy tool to get stubborn specs off the dial. It won't do much for removing patina off vintage dials.
