A Guide To Watch Materials


Watches are made out of different materials depending on the brand and the model. All or most of the watches which are featured upon are made from one of the materials listed here. The following segments clarify the material, as well as the positive and negative aspects of the material.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel, St, has a composition of being an iron-carbon alloy, combined with chromium and pennie. The best thing about watches that are made out of stainless steel is that they are not only light-weight, they are also extremely resistant to corrosives. However, it is stainless steel watches which are most easily damaged. Still, stainless steel is hard to scatch and durable and tough, the most popular choice.


Ceramic, or even Cm, has a composition of zirconium oxide. There are a number of positive aspects to watches made out of ceramics. Products made out of these components are heat resistant and very durable. As a point of interest, astronauts used ceramics on their own space shuttle heat shields. Many people find ceramic watches to be comfortable to use. Watches made from ceramics are popular for luxury watches.



Titanium, Ti, is titanium alloyed with other materials. There are a number of strengths to Titanium watches. First of all, this material allows watches to be light-weight, since it is a light-weight material. It also allows watches to be really durable. While it weighs half the amount of stainless steel, it is about twice as strong. Nevertheless, Titanium is difficult to work with, so it could be expensive to restore. Luxury sports watches are going to be best suited made out of titanium

White Gold

White Gold, WGd, is pure precious metal, typically combined with silver or even palladium. White gold is very popular and effective because it appears like steel and it is more discreet than watches made from yellow gold. Still, people often mistake white gold watches for watches made from stainless steel, and not all wearers appreciate this. White gold is most effective for watches which are high-end, luxury or even heirloom dress watches.

Physical Watery vapor Deposition

Physical Vapor Deposition, PVD, is metal with an added layer of either carbides, nitrides or oxides, which have an ionic attraction. It is a masculine patina, but it’s not one of the most scratch proof materials. Eventually, it is possible for the original steel colour to show through because of this. This material is best suited for sports activity watches.

Yellow Gold

Yellow Gold, or YGd, is actually pure gold, which is 24 karat, that has been alloyed with other materials. This is a great material since it is so gleaming and conventional, but some people don’t appreciate gold as much since it is a very soft material that may scratch as well as otherwise become damaged. However, a great material for showy watches that want to attract attention.

Rose Gold

Rose Gold, RGd, is pure precious metal, 24 karat precious metal, that has been combined with varying amounts of copper. Many people appreciate this material because of its wealthy and distinctive colouring – but it can nonetheless be prone to dents and scratches. This is the best material with regard to formal evening watches as well as really dressy sports activities watches.
