Zero-waste Electroplating: Transforming the Chemistry of Silver Coating for a Sustainable Watch Industry

The process of electroplating, used to coat watch dials, is causing major environmental challenges. Together with a major swiss watchmaking company we're seeking sustainable, eco-friendly approaches for non-toxic, longer-lasting silver electroplating solutions. Let's collaborate to build a greener watchmaking industry.
