    Nautic Timer, black bezel? Do or don't?

    I have this wonderfull Nautic Timer. But sometimes I would wish it has a black bezel.

    So I am planning to have it DLC'ed and than polish the numerals and indexes off again for that shine.

    To test this I just painted the bezel black and polished the paint off the indexes and numbers.

    What is your opinion? Should I go ahead and DLC the bezel?

    Please note that the DLC coating will be applied on a matt surface and therefor will be matt as well. I did not had matt paint at hand so in this test it is more shiny than I want it to look in the end.

    personally, I'd leave it all black.

    Why not? It's easy enough to reverse back to original. Will make the watch look more substantial on the wrist as well. Do.

    I did not do it in the end.

    I blasted the bezel, and complete case.

    Great look now!

    Looks more purposeful that way too. Especially like the SAR on it too.
