    Question What causes pepsi bezels to fade?

    Does anybody know what causes the red on pepsi bezels to fade?

    Is it sun? Water (salt?). Age?

    Depression

    Talk to your bezels.
    Encourage them to talk about their feelings.
    Involve them in activities.

    Great question, age is certainly a factor, I think sun exposure over a long period of time has a lot to do with it, regular salt water immersion or exposure could play a role also. And I think the original anodising technique or material could have an accelerated aging rate.

    The same fading is seen on Rolex's and Omega's also and I think for the very same reasons, IE: bleaching that has occurred over an extended period.

    Pretty sure they're fading due to exposure to natural light. The colors used must be made up of fugitive pigments/dyes.

    Wondering who amongst us prefers the faded look to brand new? Guess they each work well for different situations, and not too hard to pop a used/new pepsi bezel off and on

    I have both faded and clean SKX009's and I find myself wearing the faded one all the time.....something about that aged look, like a pair of aged comfortable Levi's 501's to me.....
