No AD would or will refinish your Titanium case- Reasons? -- They just don't do it.

What did I do with my PAM 305? -- I used a pencil/pen eraser, using the pen-side of the eraser on the case and everything was restored back to normal. The only difference was that the color where I applied the eraser was a little bit clearer than the normal case color. Don't worry, Titanium case regain a nice work patina pretty fast (if you use your watch in water)

My 0.2 cents.

Best,

There are many people in the city that can do it. Central Watch is a good place to do it and they are fast and good.
