Blaken – Custom Rolex Watches with Diamond Like Coating

May 3, 2012

The custom watch game has become very popular in recent years, especially turning your previous pieces matte black. While many brands have entered the space, the most prominent and respected brand in the market at the moment is without any doubt the Bamford Watch Department. Simply turning a Rolex Submariner black with a classic PVD treatment does not do the trick anymore at this point.

“When new German brand Blaken contacted us, we first thought, that somebody was a little late to the game. Then we had a closer look ant it was all worth it. The brand has developed two patented technologies, with which Blaken Watches are coated in diamond like carbon (DLC). The processes take 16 days per watch and are technically currently only possible in Germany. The resulting Rolex watch has steel that is 8 times harder than regular Rolex steel and entirely scratch resistant. The DLC techniques were originally developed for motor sports and for the aeronautical space.” – Rolex

Blaken also offers anything from a more shiny black look to matte black and of course all the usual other customization options on the dial with color and other materials. Currently Blaken customizes the Submariner, Daytona, Explorer, Deepsea, Milgauss and GMT-II models from Rolex’s Oyster Collection.
