    First Attempt At Bleaching A Bezel

    As the subject line states, I decided to give this a shot. My brushing job is probably amateur-ish, so this could look better.

    Any suggestions for next time?

    I gotta ask a silly question; what’s the intent...to give the watch a vintage vibe? Also, why brush it...as opposed to just letting it soak? Apologies if this is common knowledge or a popular mod, I’ve just never heard of it...and now you’ve got me curious.

    When you say bleaching a bezel is it so you can lighten the color or is it stained?
    As far as a brushed finish one thing I learned is take your time ,try not to get over aggressive on the edges and trying to keep the finish even.

    Two options for achieving a faded bezel:

    1. Wait years, if it ever happens
    2. Use other means

    I opted for #2. I wouldn’t think of attempting this on my Rolex GMT, but on a micro diver just for fun? Sure. Provides a faux vintage vibe.
