    Labor Day Goal: Refinish 300T Bezel

    It was time to give my 300T Sharkhunter some TLC. The last time I wore it, I noticed how yellow the polyurethane coating on my bezel had become. I knew it would yellow, but it took almost a decade for it to look bad. Labor Day Weekend seemed like the ideal time to pop the bezel off, hit it with paint stripper, and delicately paint the numbers and ticks again.

    The lume also ended up a casualty from the paint stripper. Alas, I still had just enough sitting around in my parts bin. This time, no coating. I so much prefer the steel as is.
