    That's a great question! I've never seen any personally, but I remember from my pocket knife days that a lot of custom makers (and some workshop warriors) were "heat anodizing" titanium knife scales. Can't be any different with a watch case/bracelet.

    Now I'm intrigued.

    Only one. It looked super kick ass cool and was made by a company called MCCARTHY TIME INSTRUMENTS. I do not know if the company is still active or if the watch went into production. This image is from their blog which has more pictures and information.

    Exhaust makers( cars and bikes). Don't know any watch makers.
    Very good question though. Interested to see some.

    Just take a heat torch to your watch. When you hear the gaskets sizzling, you know it's done.







    Just kidding. Don't do that.

    Oh a serious note, you could take the movement, rubber and glass out and cook it.
