Didn't want to hijack the watchplate thread for this, so excuse if this is in the wrong place. Talked to a highly recommended local businessman in my area about gilding the stainless steel apple watch. He was intrigued by the idea, but stated he would have to soak it in a nickel solution for at least 20 minutes at roughly 130 degrees Fahrenheit to acheive a satisfactory result with gold plating. Maybe I'm making the mistake of looking what's going into sausage before I order it, but this is causing me some trepidation. I'm also wondering if some of the less than satisfactory results some have reported on the watchplate thread are someone connected to this; i.e., maybe they're skimping on this step. I'd welcome everyone's thoughts and opinions on the subject. Thanks.
