    Gold Plating on GW225 Frogmen

    Hi all,
    I'm planning to pick up a GG Frogman and am curious to know how good the gold plated titanium is. Is the plating not going to fade over time? Has anybody experienced fading on their Glorious Gold or Dawn Black Frogs?

    I'm planning to dye the GG band/bezel set plus getting a Dawn Black set and hopefully enjoy it for a long time.

    But how long will the gold plating last?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    It is my understanding it is not plated, rather it is some sort of ioning process beeing used. I think it is rather durable and will not fade...
