Product Description

Product Description:

PVD, which stands for Physical Vapor Deposition, is a common coating technique used on items such as watches. PVD coatings provide an item with extended durability, scratch resistance, and aesthetic appeal.


Various PVD watch coatings are available, allowing watch makers to customize the look and feel for their designs. Here are some of the popular options:


  • DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) Coating: This is a carbon-based PVD coating, providing high hardness, low friction, and scratch resistance. It can be glossy black or matte and adds a modern touch to watches.
  • Titanium Nitride (TiN) Coating: This gold-colored coating provides a luxurious look and good scratch resistance. It is often used to mimic the look of gold but without the extra cost involved.
  • Titanium Carbon Nitride (TiCN) Coating: Combining titanium nitride and DLC, this coating delivers a dark gray or gunmetal color and high hardness. It is used for sporty and rugged designs.
  • Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN) Coating: This PVD coating mixes titanium, aluminum and nitrogen. It provides a dark gray or black color and is often used in high performance and tool watches.
  • Rose Gold PVD Coating: This is a combination of metals, including gold, copper and silver. It offers a warm, reddish-gold color leading to a luxurious style.

The right coating depends on the design and characteristics desired by the watch maker. While PVD coatings extend the item's durability and scratch resistance, they may still fade away with extensive use.

llic colors of bronze and copper in various applications, including decorative items, architectural elements, and consumer products.


PVD coatings offer several advantages compared to other types of watch coatings. Here are some key advantages of using PVD coatings:

  • Durability: PVD coatings are highly durable and offer excellent resistance to wear, scratches, and corrosion. The deposition process creates a hard and protective layer on the watch surface, enhancing its longevity and reducing the risk of damage.
  • Aesthetic Options: PVD coatings provide a wide range of color options, allowing watch manufacturers to create various finishes and styles. From black DLC coatings to gold-toned TiN coatings, PVD offers versatility in achieving different aesthetic preferences and can mimic the appearance of precious metals.
  • Uniformity: PVD coatings provide a uniform and consistent layer on the watch surface, ensuring an even distribution of color and protection. This results in a visually pleasing and high-quality finish, enhancing the overall appearance of the watch.
  • Thin Coating Thickness: PVD coatings are typically applied in thin layers, ranging from a few micrometers to tens of micrometers. This allows the watch to maintain its original dimensions and does not significantly affect the weight or functionality of the timepiece.
  • Environmental Friendliness: PVD coating is a relatively environmentally friendly process compared to other coating techniques. It is a dry process that does not produce harmful byproducts or require the use of harsh chemicals, making it a more sustainable choice.
  • Compatibility with Different Materials: PVD coatings can be applied to a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, titanium, ceramic, and even some plastics. This versatility allows watch manufacturers to apply PVD coatings to various components of the watch, such as cases, bezels, and bracelets, ensuring consistent protection and aesthetics.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: PVD coatings are generally more cost-effective compared to other coating methods, such as electroplating or ion plating. The process is efficient, and the equipment required for PVD deposition is relatively accessible, making it a viable option for both high-end and mid-range watches.

Overall, PVD coatings offer a combination of durability, aesthetic versatility, and cost-effectiveness, making them a popular choice for watch manufacturers. They provide enhanced protection and visual appeal to timepieces, ensuring that they can withstand daily wear and maintain their appearance for an extended period.

Technical Parameters:

Cathodic arc deposition and magnetron sputtering are two common methods used for DLC coating in the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process. Here's a breakdown of the differences between the two techniques:

Cathodic Arc Deposition:

1. Process: Cathodic arc deposition involves the use of a high-voltage electric arc that is generated between a carbon-based target and the watch case surface.

2. Target Material: The target material in cathodic arc deposition is typically a carbon-based material, such as graphite or amorphous carbon.

3. Vaporization: The electric arc vaporizes the carbon-based target material, creating a plasma plume consisting of highly ionized carbon species.

4. Deposition: The plasma plume is directed towards the watch case, and the ionized carbon species condense onto the surface, forming the DLC coating.

5. Advantages:
• High ionization levels create a dense and adherent coating.
• Allows for high deposition rates, resulting in faster coating processes.
• Can produce coatings with high hardness and low friction properties.

6. Limitations:
• Limited control over the composition of the coating.
• Coating thickness uniformity can be challenging to achieve.
• The deposition process can generate some heat, which may require careful temperature control.

Magnetron Sputtering:

1. Process: Magnetron sputtering involves the use of a low-pressure plasma and magnetic fields to generate a plasma discharge within the deposition chamber.

2. Target Material: The target material can be graphite or another metal target (e.g., titanium or chromium) with a carbon-containing gas introduced into the chamber.

3. Ionization and Deposition: The plasma discharge causes sputtering of metal ions from the target, which are then accelerated towards the watch case surface. Simultaneously, the carbon-containing gas dissociates into carbon ions, which bond with the metal ions on the surface, forming the DLC coating.

4. Advantages:
• Allows for better control over the composition of the coating.
• Can achieve good coating thickness uniformity.
• Offers flexibility in using different target materials for improved coating properties.

5. Limitations:
• Typically slower deposition rates compared to cathodic arc deposition.
• Requires careful control of gas flow and pressure to optimize coating quality.
• Coating hardness and adhesion properties may vary based on process parameters.

Both cathodic arc deposition and magnetron sputtering have their advantages and limitations. The choice of method depends on factors such as the desired coating properties, deposition rate requirements, equipment availability, and the expertise of the coating facility. Watch manufacturers may select the method that best suits their specific needs and quality standards.


PVD coatings offer several advantages when compared to solid metal counterparts. They are typically more cost-effective, provide enhanced durability and corrosion resistance, and can be applied to a wide range of substrates. These benefits make PVD coatings an attractive option for achieving the metallic colors of bronze and copper in various applications, including decorative items, architectural elements, and consumer products.
