Bead Blasting Pro's & Con's

Post by SeikoJohn on Mon Oct 09 2017, 16:40

I really like the dull gun metal style of a watch case after it has been bead blasted



I have a relative that is friends with someone that owns a bead blaster and was thinking of having one of my cases and bracelets blasted but are there any con's that I am unaware of ? is it more prone to scratches after being blasted ? does it need to be coated with some kind of protection ?

Any help and info greatly appreciated

satin finish from bead blasting does mark and will require re blasting to restore plus there is bead blasting and then there is bead blasting,
if its an industrial blaster it would probably do more harm that good, the case needs to be completely bare which exposes the case back threads and crown tube threads along with sealing areas for the crystal gasket and caseback gasket, i would be inclined to get a cheap stainless steel case done to see what the results are as once done it cant be undone

good idea about getting a cheap stainless steel case done first I had never thought about that .
