    Thoughts on a brushed finish Seatime...

    Has anyone here done or had this done? I've been thinking about doing this to my Seatime off and on for a while now. I can easily do a professional level job myself but since it's not easily reversible I'm hesitant. If anybody has pictures of a brushed Seatime or Prodiver I'd really appreciate them.

    Thanks, Scott

    hi, i've brushed my prodiver, when i recieved it there were some pretty big scratches from strap changes. couldn't have that! so a quick run through my satin finish wheel and here you go.

    Thanks cicketdave, a few more questions...

    It's hard to tell from your pic but what grain pattern did you use on the case top? Circular? Also, on the beveled portion of the "lugs" did you match the direction of the bracelet end link graining? I won't be using a buffing motor but instead will do it by hand if I decide to go through with it. What satin wheel did you use and at what RPM?

    TIA, Scott

    on the case top i took the bezel off and just brushed straight to match the bracelet, i used a 3 ply satin finish wheel on a jewelry buffing machine i dont know the rpm on it, just made it straight across and straight on the sides, then right down the bracelet so that it all matches.

    I've been thinking of using a circular pattern on...

    the top of the case to give it some more visual interest. I'm still not convinced I want to do this yet as my case looks about 97+%. There is one small hairline near a lug screw but it is barely visible even in harsh light. I haven't been especially careful with this watch as I've surfed with it numerous times and wear it to work regularly but it still looks nearly new. I've thought about picking up a used one with more wear and tear to try this on.
