Our Manufacturing Capabilities on Watch Case
Watchmaking is a field that requires high precision for the shape. The watch case must be made to the highest standards to create a durable, shockproof, and waterproof timepiece.
The final watch case must fit tight tolerances in order to meet ISO 2281 watch standards. This requires exceptional craftsmanship paired with superb machinery.
At RapidDone shopfloor, we have the full outstanding manufacturing processes to cover all these.
1. Different Materials Options
At RapidDone, we have a catalog of top-notch materials that we can source for making high-quality watch cases.
√ Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is a popular choice for watch cases. It is affordable, non-allergic, and it is corrosion and rust-resistant.
The PVD coating we put on the stainless-steel watch case only further increases its wear resistance. This makes the watch more durable.
We stock a variety of stainless steel for watch case creation, including the 304 and the premium 316L and 303.
Magnesium is a lightweight material we can easily fashion into a stunning watch case for you. We have several alloys you can choose from to manufacture your case.
Aluminum is another excellent option for creating low-cost watch cases. It is lightweight, easy to machine, and, most of all, cheap.
We can still give the Aluminum watch case an anodized coating to protect them and make them last longer.
Titanium watches occupy the premium end of the spectrum. It boasts superior strength, corrosion resistance, and strength-to-weight ratio over all other watch case materials.
As a plus, it also has a sleek modern look, making it the ideal choice for casual and pilot watch cases.
Bronze watch cases have this distinctive, elegant look that immediately makes them stand out from the crowd. In addition, they’re also corrosion-resistant, and they gain a beautiful, vintage patina as they age.
We also have different top-of-the-line CNC milling machines from three to five-axis. These machines give our machinists extreme control over the production process.
Thanks to the multiple axes on these machines, we can do everything in one piece. We can handle unconventional and asymmetrical watch cases, like the square, cushion, and tank, easily with our milling machines.
The milling machines can create stunning, highly detailed bezels for the watch. We can also inscribe and engrave custom designs on the watch case and back.
3. Finishing Options
At RapidDone, we provide a wide variety of finishing processes you can choose from.
After machining the CNC watch cases, we polish them to give them an ultra-smooth, highly reflective surface. This brings out the beauty of the metal and removes any production imperfections.
√ Wet Lapping
Wet Lapping is a specialized form of polishing we use to achieve an even smoother surface. It produces an extremely high-quality, shiny surface.
√ Passive Vapor Discharge (PVD) Coating
We offer a PVD finishing process to enhance the durability of the watch cases we produce. The PVD coating protects the surface of the metal against scratches, chips, dents, and rust.
Other services we provide include staining, sandblasting, anodizing, etc.
