I have owned various Sinn watches over the years, and currently have a brushed 556i (non Tegimented) and fully tegimented 857 UTC. These two watches consist of my entire rotation these days. Generally I prefer a brushed finish on my watches, as it is easy to repair and shows scratches less than a bead blasted finish, but I really love the 857. I also simply prefer the aesthetics of a brushed case/bracelet. I'm curious if anyone has had a tegimented Sinn case or bracelet fully brushed by a watchmaker? I'm sure many Sinn fans prefer the blasted look, however I'm intrigued at the thought of a one-off brushed/tegimented Sinn.
I'm assuming the hardened surface would make a brushed finish difficult to apply, but certainly not impossible. Sinn and Damasko only offer a blasted finish on their hardened watch. This may be because of the difficulty applying a brushed finish, or perhaps simply because folks associate bead blasting with tool watches. Bremont's cases are reportedly harder than both Sinn and Damasko at 2000 Vickers - and yet their watches come in brushed finishes. I mostly desk-dive - but the plastic laminate on my desk was presumably developed by Formica to clad the Space Shuttle or the inside of nuclear reactors, so even with a wrist pad- my tegimented bracelet is picking up marks.
