Picked up the Tudor Black Bay 36 and really like it. Wears slightly smaller than I would have preferred but it really is a nice dress that you can also dress down with the nato or a nice leather. Two things I would have liked is to have a different nato strap, meaning I think black or blue would have been better than the camouflage.
The other thing would be a brushed bezel. I looked up explorers which have a similar look and found that Rolex actually released a fully brushed version as part of the Hillary Tenzing Explorer collection which were limited to 88 editions. It made me think I could do something similar to the Black Bay.
Some folks will say I ruined the watch and I shouldn't mess with how it was released but at the end of the day a watch is YOUR watch. Do what you want with it because it means something to you. Plus I knew I could get it back to the polished look when I get it serviced.
So I grabbed some tools, painting tape and here is the result.
Went through the process and I think it looks better. Here is how I did it. YouTube Link
