Watch Design: PVD Coating

PVD stands for ‘Physical Vapor Deposition’. It is a modern technology in which condensation of atoms or molecules from a gas or vapor form thin, but very hard layers of coating (1 to 3 micrometers) when they are applied to a metal carrier, for example the watch case or other metal parts. This process takes place under vacuum. 

PVD Coating

PVD is often used within watchmaking by giving stainless steel or titanium a colored coating, usually yellow (gold), but other colors also occur. PVD coating has the advantage of being very scratch-resistant, resistant to corrosion and makes it possible to choose in many different colors.
