I've got 2 strap's for my G-SHOCK and they both have stainless steel Buckles / clasp's, Anyone know of a cheap effective way to blacken these up easily.
So I can cut down the Shine. I don't want to bugger up the steel or strap.
you can get stainless steel blackener, i cant remember what its called but if you google that should give you some idea. I have used it before for stainless, and simialr products for brass and gunmetal. Its like liquid you paint on then wash off, and it leaves behind a tough coating almost like anodising
You could just paint them. Get a little tin of Humbrol enamel paint. It might chip after a while so it depends how smart you want the finish to look. I've used Humbrol on the adjusters on my braces to dull them down and its lasted really well though they wouldn't be subject to the same type of wear as a watchstrap.
I leave my good Seiko at home and wear a black Timex Marathon. Otherwise, the watch goes into a zippered pocket.
Canada geese are acutely suspicious of every last bit of microscopic shine in what they see.
Gauntlet black gloves are another solution to the puzzle.
