Default Bead blasting? ......... IF

And thats a big IF............ if you were going to bead blast this 6309 would you bead blast the entire case, case back, bezel and crown or how do you think it would look good with just the case and case back blasted for a nice contrast or would it look really, really dumb?
TIA

(sorry for the poor pic)

Not that the cases are the same, but I did a partial bead blast on this 007 case to give it a two tone look. I rather like it, but I don't know exactly how it would look on your 6309.







I also sterilized and blasted the case back.





I later partially blasted a jubilee bracelet to finish things off.

It really depends on what you are trying to do with the watch. are you planing on leaving that dial in there or are you trying to modify this further. If you are leaving that dial in there, consider doing a heavy blast and coat it in tan Teflon. That would make for a more cohesive theme and you could mount the whole thing on a nice tan leather strap or a tan nylon strap.
