Cases, Barrels & Crowns

Can you re-polish my case?

Only cases made from white or rose gold can be re-polished. Hardened steel and coated cases cannot be re-polished due to their special coatings therefore top bezels can be replaced on request at the time of service.

Does DLC become scratched?

Although DLC is much harder than generic PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) coatings it can still be scratched, so inevitably, over time, it will have little nicks and scratches where the steel shows through. It is still only a hardened layer that is microns in thickness

What is DLC & how long will it last?

DLC is ‘Diamond Like Carbon’. It is a nanocomposite coating that has the unique properties of natural diamond – low friction, high hardness (around 3,000 Vickers) and high corrosion resistance. Originally intended as a functional coating to reduce friction and wear in highly stressed components in motor sport engines, it is now also used as a decorative element for luxury goods such as watches. It has excellent properties of hardness, impact, scratch and wear-resistance combined with a noble black metallic look. It is chemically inert (non-tarnishing), odourless and hypoallergenic.

What is Sapphire Crystal?

Sapphire Crystal is the favoured material for watch crystals due to its exceptional hardness (9 on the Mohs scale). The sapphire crystal has superior scratch-resistant properties compared to mineral or acrylic crystals and is treated with anti-reflective coating.
