Below is our current pricing. Please inquire if you don't see the work you want listed. Prices do not include return shipping. Information on sending your watch to us for work can be found on the Contact page.



Prices are subject to change and will vary depending on other work being done and how many watches are being worked on. For instance new crystals are installed free if the watch is being blasted or cerakoted as this part has to be removed for the blasting or cerakote process.




Bead Blasting

Watch with removable bezel (diver type):
Includes case, bezel, case back, and crown: .......... 50

Watch with non-removable bezel:
Includes case, case back, and crown: .......... 45

For each control other than crown: .......... 12

For display case back: .......... 10

Bezel number painting (some watches will need it some won't): .......... 0 to 25

Bracelet (includes basic fold over clasp): .......... 45

Buckle (for watches on straps): .......... 10

Misc parts such as screws or crown guards: .......... 8 to 25

Watches with PVD, ceramic, or other coating must have this coating removed before the final finish can be applied:

For case or bracelet: .......... 30 For both: .......... 45


Bead blasting can be done in one of 3 finishes.

Flat: has minimal light reflecting properties.

Low Light: has medium light reflecting properties.

Hi Light: the most light reflecting. Has a "liquid metal" look. Not quite polished but smooth and bright.

If finish is not specified default will be Hi Light.

Bead Blasting

NOTE: Bead blasting will not remove scratches or dents, only the most superficial of desk diving marks and with flat and low light very shallow laser engraving.

Another NOTE: I'm not a great photographer and getting a good pic of these case backs was tough. In person, each of these finishes is smooth in both look and feel. The blasting does not change the color of the metal, however, depending on the finish and lighting the metal may "look" darker.

In person, the Low Light finish has the darkest "look" in most lighting. Although all the finishes look real good =) Hope this helps.

Of the 3 finishes, Flat is the most sensitive. The blast profile is such that it doesn't take much contact to show "desk diving" marks.

Watch with non-rotating bezel:
Includes case, case back, and crown: .......... 95

Watch with rotating bezel:
Includes case, bezel, case back, and crown: .......... 120

Bezel only: .......... 35 (does not include bezel removal, insert installation, or number painting)

If bezel requires the pip be re-lumed: .......... 9

For each control other than crown: .......... 22

For display case back: .......... 15

Watch strap buckles: .......... 25 to 45

Watch bracelet end links: .......... 15 each

The picture below is not an exact color reference, it is a guide to help you visualize the color differences. For instance the Dark Earth and Coyote Tan look different in the picture, on a watch however, they are much closer with the Dark Earth having a green tone and the Coyote Tan having tan tone. Using this chart and the pictures found on the website you'll be able to get a very good idea of how the colors will look on your watch.

Pressure testing:

Up to 7 ATM dry test: ..........8

3 ATM wet test: ..........15

11 ATM wet test: ..........20

Pressure test rating is based on the dry and wet testers pressure gauge. One ATM (atmosphere) is appromimately 33.6 feet. The test provided is a not a guarantee of waterproofness but a pass / fail test that your watch will keep water out at the depth tested to.

The depths tested to are not a direct indication that your watch can't go deeper, they are based on the maximum depth my machines can test.

If your watch fails the dry test it will require a wet test to find the location of the leak. You can choose to replace the bad gasket(s), take the watch as is knowing the watch failed, or replace all the gakets. These options will be discussed in further detail if the watch fails the test.
