    Going on with my DLC project on 15500.
    Here following some samples of DLC coating already done on watches, by the firm I'm going to rely on to do this treatment.
    They seems really nice, to me. What do you think?
    From the pics I can only say that they look nice. Remember that DLC is also about how durable the surface treatment is and the actual finish in person.
    These will need to be seen and addressed in person of course.
    All the best and keep us updated!
    Today is the Tomorrow you were worried about Yesterday.

      As for DLC thickness, they spoke about 4um at max, to prevent unsightly effects.
      As for price, it is not popular at all, but far from some retailer ask for it. The bad thing is that covering 1 clock or 9 costs the same amount....
      If someone, here in EU, is interested in made this treatment done, feels free to contact me in pm, so we could split the costs.
      Otherwise, I will deal alone. I'm just waiting the watch that actually is on the road from TD.

        I know, mate. The duration of the treatment on the watch on wrist is to be verified. But as this is not my only watch and I think I will rotate it the others, I hope it will last me long time. Then I'm also thinking of using films at least on the back of the case.

            Good thinking to protect the DLC coat with protective stickers. Just ensure you choose the right kind to preserve the visual finish of the DLC too.

              wearing it sparingly because I don't want it to please me too much in steel version as it is .....

                Did you receive a firm price for the plating? Last time we spoke it was quite ‘vague’...
