Los Angeles, CA, August 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The process involves contacting Time and Gems via email or phone from their website, TimeandGems.com, and obtaining a quote that varies depending on the complexity of the timepiece. Customers then ship their watch to Time and Gems and the process of disassembling, polishing and coating takes approximately 4 weeks to complete.
"The PVD process has been around for decades, typically used on Formula 1 racing parts and surgical instruments to increase their lifetime," says Alex Morano, manager of PVD customizations at Time and Gems. "We've taken it to the next level, by not just being able to do it for Swiss timepieces such as Rolex
, but being able to offer additional dial and bezel customizations that no other company can offer."
There are a number of independent companies that offer the service of PVD coating, however the majority of these companies do not work exclusively with fine Swiss watches and often do not know how to properly handle timepieces. Time and Gems has modified the process heavily to exclusively accommodate Swiss timepieces and also offers pre-finished models from a range of Swiss luxury brands including Rolex, Breitling, Panerai, Tag Heuer, IWC, Cartier and more.
