    Nissan using DLC coating on pistons to reduce friciton by 25%

    I did some searches on DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating that is on certain G-shocks. It turns out that this coating has some remarkable properties:low coefficient of friction, high wear resistance, high indentation resistance, anti-allergic properties, and it's biocompatible. It's currently used in many industries:automotive, medical, machinery, just to name a few and of course our beloved watch industry. Here is the Nissan link http://www.nissan-global.com/EN/TECH...DLC/index.html

    And another link http://www.brunel.ac.uk/about/acad/s...s/me/dlc/brief
    Are you a Watchaholic using the C.A.G.E. criteria?

    Have you ever felt the need to Cut down on your watch binging?
    Have you ever felt Annoyed by crticism of your watch binging?
    Have you ever felt Guility about watch binging?
    Have you ever had to take a morning Eye opener?
