Different gold timepieces lend distinct looks. You maybe eyeing a timepiece with a solid gold case but it’s likely to be a big investment. Other options include PVD – an abbreviation for physical vapor deposition – is a process where the chosen material, be it gold, steel or carbon, is vaporized. This process lends a more durable finish to the watch. Another alternative is gold plating, wherein a thin layer of gold is melted onto another metal, giving the appearance of real gold. Many connoisseurs also prefer a PVD finish as it lasts longer and is harder wearing when compared to simple gold-colored watches.
