Satin-finish consists of making a matt surface with long stripes. Satin-finishing is quite common in the case of a watch but also sometimes on parts of the movement.

It is often done with an emery brush, emery paper or an emery stone. It can be of different fineness depending on the size of the grain used for its execution.

It is a decoration that can be done on many metals, like steel, brass, gold, platinum or for example also titanium.

For the industrial method, satin-finishing is a decoration that is suitable for flat parts but also for other shapes, hollow or curved for example.

In fact, for large quantities, custom layouts can be made for a number of different shapes.
