    Bead-blasting a watch case

    Some years ago I had an old SKX009 head-blasted and it looked great. Was thinking of doing the same with a more recent Seiko - any TZís doing case mods these days?

    Tempus watch mods on Insta has modded a few Seikos for me, including bead-blasting.
    Always great work.

    That looks amazing! Do you recall what something like this costs to have done?

    Thinking about getting this bear blasted. Not sure if cerakote would look any good here given the vintage vibe.

    I love a bead blast finish.
    Yours would look great - but you have to accept that if you mark it (they pick up sort of rub marks a little) then you need it re-blasted to refinish

    I can check costs for that turtle mod, but it is surprisingly inexpensive, in my opinion.
