    Vintage looking SKX009 Pepsi bezel. How to?

    I thought that I read somewhere of how you can take a SKX009 Pepsi bezel and give it that worn out kind of vintage look. I could be wrong, I thought that I read how it's done.

    Now for certain I do remember reading and seeing a pic of a worn out Pepsi bezel from someone's SKX009, and if I'm correct someone even posted to take it off and save it, and replace it with another one.

    Just curious because I thought it would be cool to mod a SKX009 and sort of give it that vintage look. In fact I was even thinking to make it my every day wearer to help me with the process.

    Thanks in advance everyone. Sincerely, Stromboli.

    If you want to fade the colors I'd just leave the bezel insert somewhere that gets a lot of direct sunlight. UV will fade just about anything. Not sure how long it would take.

    You could also do some manual distressing with sandpaper, make some tool marks, etc.. But I think the faded look with minimal damage would be my choice.
