HISTORY

INTRODUCTION OF PVD TO THE WATCHMAKING SECTOR

Watchmaking has been interested in PVD treatment since the early 1980s. Both functional and aesthetic, the first black treatments on watch cases give the watch products a more technical look, offering an alternative to conventional materials such as steel, gold or platinum.

DEVELOPMENT OF ALD SOLUTIONS

In order to provide ever more innovative solutions to its customers, and also to address certain issues limiting use of PVD, POSITIVE COATING took an interest in ALD solutions.

By combining these two technologies, it was able to meet the lack of colour stability and homogeneity, and significantly expand the number of colours available.
