Gold Plating on Swiss Watches

Gold plating technologies have improved over the decades. Gold plating (and gold itself) is often used in electronics and other sectors. This demand has dramatically increased the quality of gold plating procedures.

A thin layer of gold is applied to the base metal (usually steel) which gives it the gold color. These coatings are highly resistant and long lasting. Not all gold plating is equal, as anyone who has bought a fake gold Rolex from New York or Mexico will tell you. Oris produces some of the highest quality gold plated watches we have ever seen.
