This Notebook will collect, I hope temporarily, decorative surface finishing processs for which either (a) I know of an example but I don't know what it is called, or (b) I have a name or reference but I don't know what it looks like.

The movement of an Omega Speedmaster Calibre 321 wristwatch ("chronograph") taken by flickr user "Malenkov in Exile" (Shane Lin). The brass wheels (gears) are finished with circular graining (not really visible in this view as they are in motion), and the case is either circular grained or brushed (perhaps a matter of definition). But the plates themselves are finished with a sort of a ribbed pattern of arcs. (Click through to see it in full resolution.) What is this called? How was it produced?
