Brushing the polished Metal on C60

Post by milesthng »

I am thinking of doing this! Any idea how much it would cost? I personally do not really like very shiny watches at all. I really like the tool-ish look of my breitling seawolf avenger Ti and Although i do love the trident, it is a little too polished up for me.

I understand most jewellers/watch repairers can do it. any idea on costs? (:

Prices will vary widely but should fall between $75 - $150 USD depending if you want just bracelet or case and bracelet done.

Brushing will be hard, and I"m thinking it will not be cheap.

You could consider having it blasted. See the difference on a non-blasted and blasted watch:

Should run you about €50 for a full watch (+bracelet).
