Seems I have seen bits and pieces of discussions regarding the scratch resistance of various coatings for Ti cases and bands on this forum, but now I cannot find them.
I am trying to find out if the Oceanus Ti watches have a DLC or carbide type coating on them. I am specifically looking at the Japanese only OCW-300TDBJ-1AJF vs the American version OCW500TDA-1AV. Seems like I ran across these in discussions about Citizen DLC vs Seiko "diashield", but I cannot get any real solid confirmation. The Oceanus site does not even mention the coating. I ran across a Casio Technology document which mentions a TiC treatment on case and bands for the OCW P500 and OCW S1000 versions. Don't know if this applies to the entire product line though. Is this coating as good as the Citizen DLC?
Any help you guys can provide would be appreciated.
