In order to darken the chrome ring around the face of the watch, I would like to remove the bezel for better access. It appears that the bezel is in two halves, each secured by three small Phillips-head screws. My plan for the ring, after masking the crystal, is a slight roughening with fine sandpaper, followed by carefully applied flat black paint and finally a coat of poly. Before beginning, I would value any comments or suggestions from those who know more. Thanks.
