    PVD bracelet on stainless steel watch, fad?

    Hello,

    Just trying to get everyone's opinion on this. I have seen PVD / black bracelets on stainless steel watches. Something similar to this Strap-Code demo pic:



    Honestly I have no opinion on this. How many fellow WIS have done this? Any wristshots?

    Cheers!

    I like it, but I have an issue with it too. The stainless looks to be a brushed finish. The PVD texture is just enough different to not quite work. Polished would be worse, but I'm thinking getting a better texture match would be an improvement.

    And it's working because the bezel text is silver, rather than red or blue or something. You're getting a 'black wrapping silver' look.

    The problem will be that the PVD will scratch, and more easily on bracelet than on a case or bezel.
    The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

    PVD vs Electroplating coating is different. Usually, PVD is less durable.
