    Where to get PVD Coatings (TiN & TiCN) for watch parts

    Does anyone know where one can get watch parts PVD coated in titanium nitride, zirconium nitride or similar coatings? I found some companies online but they only do large batch orders. I was looking for someone who will do small orders.

    Jack at IWW does DLC and may be able to do the others.

    One reason it is so expensive is the fixed cost. When the machine is turned on you can either have one watch in the chamber or 100 watches in the chamber.

    Unless you know someone or have a lot of watches to do, this process is still out of reach of the general hobbyist.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

    yeah I figured that's why a lot of the companies that I contacted so far have a minimum order and they only do large batch work.

    Yeah I knew about IWW will contact them to see if they can do the other coatings, thanks for the suggestion
