So what is Graphene?

In 2010, two researchers from the University of Manchester were awarded the Noble Prize for the graphene discovery.

Basically, it is an allotrope of carbon and two dimensional. Here are just a few of its remarkable attributes:

200X stronger than steel
Harder than diamond
Enhanced corrosion resistance
2 dimensional (one atom thick)

Conducts electricity 10X better than copper without the heat buildup
Anti-microbial

However, this amazing material is also expensive…around $100/gram. But it provides uber watch protection and, well…it’s just cool. The important thing is that we are now able to offer the Arcadia Field Watch with one of the planet’s strongest materials fused to the watch case.  So now, you just might have a watch that is beyond durable and can hold up to Superman!

We are extremely pleased to be one of the first companies to move to commercial use of graphene. DuraPhene is the brand name of the graphene/enhanced case coating.  The application of the coating is outsourced to a sophisticated U.S. coating facility that performs work for DARPA, NASA and private enterprises.  DuraPhene proprietary coating(s) are designed to essentially become part of the substrate matrix which offers superior strength and adherence. In simpler terms, the material is thermally fused to the substrate.    

The benefits of DuraPhene include:
Corrosion protection
Anti-glare and slick
Wear / abrasion resistant
Anti-microbial
Enhanced hardness (+9 Rockwell)
