CAN YOU RE-POLISH MY CASE?
Only cases made from white or rose gold can be re-polished best possible. Hardened steel and coated cases cannot be re-polished due to their special treatment therefore top bezels are replaced at the time of service (excluding limited edition models) or upon request.
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, wear will become present.
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.
