Default Polished bling bezel to Brushed in less then 4 minutes/

As I have stated previously I know have three Vostok Amphibias.

The watch, case, and bezel are highly polished stainless steel. I like this on the scuba dude, but it doesn't look so swell on the latest Black Dial model I obtained.

The change-out took less than four minutes, first put a piece of scotch tape between case and bezel, pop off the bezel with the proper tool (which I have), take the bezel and put it face down on a wet Scotchbrite "Green" scrubbing pad, and about four or five rotations while pressing down on it and Voila!

It doesn't have that chrome-plated car bumper appearance anymore and is much more presentable!

I am still in the process of mangling an Invicta case trying to pry off a bezel. But for you life is all sunshine and rainbows huh?😂

Not really, the white dial one refused to come off, so that one stays stock!

It always amazes me how this can change the look of a watch Chaz !

Have often seen it done, but never tried it, but it really makes
a watch look phenomenal, and almost more tool-like honestly.
What's neat is had thought it looked nice before, but now it
looks great sir. Well done MacGyver..I mean Chaz !
