I have an EZM-3 I like a whole lot, but I do notice, especially on sunny days, that the non-tegimented blasted finish is more reflective than I'd like. I've wondered about the idea of having it re-blasted at some point with a rougher media to give it a more subdued-looking finish like its tegimented and titanium big brothers. Has anyone ever tried that, either doing it yourself or sending it out? Any pics or recommendations?
Since the current finish isn't very resistant to normal desk-diving marks, and I'm not too obsessive over those anyway, I don't think I'd be losing anything in that regard.
It seems like at least some places that do this disassemble the watch to blast the case, so I suppose the inert gas would be shot, which is not an attractive idea, so I wonder if there would be a way around it. Any idea what the turnaround time is for the various places (MCWW, IWW, etc.) that will do this for you?
Thanks for any thoughts. Here's a photo just for fun:
