What is Ion Plating?
Ion plating is a vacuum plating technique where metal is transferred on the surface, its atleast 50 times stronger than wet plating (where the metal is transferred via ionized liquid). In other words Ion plated surface has stronger resistance to water, sweat.
Stainless Steel Crowns.
This results in lot longer life of crowns to both wear and tear corrosion.
Stainless Steel case Back.
This is needed to provide extra resistance to sweat which is acidic and hence highly corrosive.
What's the usual battery life?
Usually a battery will last for over 12 to 18 months.
What's the movement life?
The Miyota 2035 movement used in this case has a life of 15-20 years, over this time period the watch will display time with very high accuracy.
What's special about the watch strap?
The watch strap is made of genuine leather both on top and bottom. The leather on bottom has special treatment which results in extra resistance to water sweat. Usually the watch straps are PU on top while genuine leather is only used in the bottom. Each TZARO watch comes with all Genuine Leather strap which has a long life.
What's the water resistance?
The water resistance comes from crown which needs to have a washer and needs to perfectly fit in, the glass needs to be strong enough to handle the pressure and needs to be backed by a washer, and the case back needs to be air tight. Every TZARO watch is 30 meters water proof and has been tested in pressure chambers for being water proof.
What is a ring set case?
Ring set case has a ring which has been attached to the case, this allows differential plating to the case (where we can plate case in one color and ring in some other color).
