Most recent addition to my Seiko stable, a Black Monster. required only a clean, lub, and the bezel repainting.large.1733958557_SeikoBlackMonster6..JPG.ea2fd5fbaac287063c7bc0e08b6d12d5.JPG

      i have an old black seiko with a stainless braclet and case.  of course. most of the paint has worn off.  i don't think paint will stick to stainless.  vin

I use a fine tip paint pen for the job. After removing the old flaking paint, I thoroughly degrease it then run the paint in and allow to dry. Dont worry about it spreading onto the bezel I just scrape it off with an expired credit card, then buff it up with my dremel using a felt mop. Never had a problem with it not sticking. the engraving is rough enough to give a good key.

I do like these, I have one on and it's currently on the Seiko black rubber strap. I took two watches on holiday recently and the Seiko was on the wrist more, looks great in the water. Enjoy.
