    Hey,
    So I was looking at a picture someone posted in the accessories subforos. It's an as watch with link bracelet strap. It just occurred to me. I'd love a as watch with the same matt finish as the strap itself.
    I don't like shiny metals ;-)

    Just wear it for a year or so and a good bit of the shiny will be history.

    Did you try the brushed look using green scotchbrite pads? I'm interested in doing the same when my watch arrives.

    Am I the only one who thinks that someone who bought their watch just to smash/scratch/destroy it should try to give it a brushed look first? That way we know how it turns out. :D

    One of those crazy YouTube channels where they destroy watches should try it. Or someone rich.

    anyone has tried it already? I don't have an apple watch yet but planning to try this trick. I hate mirror finish on SS. did that on my analog tisot miror SS watch once and it looked great - sapphire glass survived brushing with a nail buffer just fine. the finish was beautiful and not showing all these micro scratches from daily use...

    oh, no. matte aluminium looks nothing like brushed steel. and also feels differently. I really like brushed steel, I've had many analog watches in this finish, hope apple will make a brushed steel option among next generation watches...

    Now if they come out with a brushed steel in the next generation I might consider giving up my Space Black Stainless Steel but currently I just couldn't stand having I chrome looking watch on my wrist. Looks good on others just too shiny for me.
