DLC Coating

Diamond-like carbon: protect and enhance.

A way to coat your steel watch black, is the use of a method called DLC. It's a man-made, diamond hard type of applied coating. It's used to cover the exterior or metallic parts that come into contact with heavy duty wear-and-tear. Once the carbon is blasted onto the surface, it is cooled down extremely quickly, somewhat similar to how synthetic diamonds are made. Scratch resistant with a damage resistant nature, this unbelievably hard and thin coating blankets and protects the condition of any watch.
