Bexley edge and chamfers - polish or not to polish an all original 16750...?

Today I took delivery of this lovely 7.2m series 16750 GMT, box, papers, the lot.

Advertised and sold to me as all original, which it certainly appears to be and i couldn't be happier

Even the case looks unpolished and unmolsted in anyway. The seller didn't like to use the word "unpolished" as he hadn't owned it from new but we both agree the case looks untouched with just the odd nick and dent here and there.

So the question is, do I leave this all original beauty as is?

As the pictures show and tell, and a macro lens shows no mercy, the case has had an eventful 30 years on someone's wrist...

IMO this is the perfect example of a vintage watch that would really benefit of a trip to Bexley to have the case fixed up to the luster it deserves....

Anyone who thinks this would be a complete and utter travesty?
