Hi guys,

Working on a new project.
Just want to gather what everyone thinks/prefer to have.

1) PVD, Blackened steel

2) Tegiment, Icehardening

3) Mix of 1 and 2.

Which do you prefer.

Aesthetics or the hardening of the steel?



Regards
Anders

Hi Anders

Thanks for letting us get involved again.

I like them both. It depends on the type of watch and

use and the look.

If you are just asking what I would consider more important

then it would be the better steele. tegimnted.

Thanks

Billy S

How about a fourth option - DLC?  Very hard to damage, gives an almost gunmetal color appearance, not as dark as PVD and not plain old SS.   This Night Train uses DLC...

hmmm,
          can i have ice-hardening n DLC together?? lol.that be the match made in heaven. smile8.gif  i think some people r on the quest for that one watch that is indestructable, that can go tru hell n come back unsciave. imo theres isnt onem,it doesnt exsist. Everythign can be scratched if used with the right amount of force even diamond but its nice to have a few technology which allows a watch to negoiate everyday wear n still look newish. However last time i checked for an end-user to get his watch DLCed cost around 1000$ at least and that doesnt include the assembly watchmaker charge. Companys like ball, Sinn, citizen etc2 can do it.cos they work on economies of scale. How much money n effort r u willing to put into Dievas to see that through. Ultimately i love to have a watch that ouuzes technical advantages but within at a certain price bracket. Somethign to ponder upon i reckon. :):)

Diamond Like Carbon(DLC) is definitely high on my list together with some other treatments.

I have talked to a couple of specialist companies in Europe now.

But the thing is that none of them are willing to take up our small quantity. And we are not talking about 10-20 pieces here. We are talking hundreds of pieces.

And the cost is pretty high. I was thinking of offering it to Dievas customers with no markup at all. So its cost to cost for the treatment.

And the price is about $300-400 per watch treatment.
Will you guys be willing to pay that for a treated case?

yea,
     my sentiments exactly.its not only the treatment itself, the whole watch must compliment the process if not it be just a waste of your effort i reckon. Hundreds of pieces is a substantial call though especially at this stage.....why not try a few samples on your current range as a trial run..see how well its recieved then maybe u can decide accordingly. However i must say $300-400 is not a lot to pay and its a great idea to further spread the Dievas brand across. i personally would definately be interested. will be lookin at this closely from now. smile8.gifsmile8.gif
