316L Stainless steel is a grade of stainless steel that has extra-low carbon content and is extremely resistant to corrosion such as seawater or acidic liquids. 316L is also magnetic resistant, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201or 304L. With Molybdenum added, it gives 316L a better overall corrosion-resistant property than 304L. Therefore the material is widely used in diving equipments due to the materials' high corrosion-resistance.
Wristouch watches are made of premium quality materials such as surgical steel (316L) that is also used in medical engineering. The cool look of the stainless steel and the puristic and clear line of the Wristouch watch design complement each other ideally and guarantee a glittering appearance. The elegant Wristouch look is achieved with a finely brushed or highly polished stainless steel surface.
Throughout wristouch watch bands, IP Black plated stainless steel is often offered in matt finishes. IP plating with most materials produces a more scratch resistant (harder) surface. The end result is also relatively lightweight, so easy to wear and the coating means watches are five times stronger than standard stainless steel ones and not easily to wear off
