Lot Essay

This watch is one of the rare customized Royal Oak models to appear in public, the black coating rendering it a completely different very appealing look. The black DLC-coating (for Diamond-like-carbon) was done in 2012 upon request of the owner of the watch. DLC or diamond-like carbon has some of the valuable properties of diamonds, such as resistance to wear and smoothness. It has become a popular coating for watches, providing superior durability and wear resistance while creating an aesthetic appeal.
