What is dlc coating watches scratch resistance

DLC is an acronym for Diamond Like Carbon. The process of dlc watch coating is similar to PVD heated in a vacuum environment but also has some differences. The main difference is that instead of spraying on a group of metals by PVD, DLC watch coating uses a form of carbon.
The coating produced by DLC combines the hardness of diamond and carbon, making the DLC watch case scratch resistant. It protects your watch from scratches, chafing and wearing.

DLC watch coating is environmentally friendly and usually applied on various metal alloy watches like black dlc stainless steel or black dlc titanium watches.
The extremely scratch resistant of DLC watch case is more durable and longevity even frequent used in harsh environments. It is commonly used for sporty or robust look watches. However, dlc watch coating is limited to shades of black color only currently as the primary coating element is carbon. In addition, the cost of dlc watch coating is more expensive than pvd watch coating.

Will dlc coating watch scratch / coming off

The dlc watch coating layer on the watch parts surface is only around 0.02mm/2microns thick, but still, it makes the watch extremely hard to scratch. The processing temperature is from 120 to 160 degrees centigrade in the vacuum coating machine with 6 to 8 hours of processing time.
It is important to know that not all DLC coating is made of the same quality.
If the DLC watch coating has been made in a low-quality way, it is at risk of coming off. Low temperature and less processing time might cause the dlc coating layers to not attach to the watch surface well. However, if the coating on watch is thicker it will also impact the close tolerance of the high-precision parts assembly, which will risk functionality problems.
