PVD Plating provides an extremely durable coating, it is more resistant to damage caused by sea water and sweat than plating and so the plating doesn’t wear away as fast as traditional plating.
HOW TO OPEN: To open a segment ring, you need to pop out the segment, which can be quite difficult if you are just using your fingers. Segment rings are designed to hold onto the segment tightly to ensure they don't open accidentally. To open, we recommend you use a pair of Ring Opening Pliers where you simply insert the pliers into the middle of the ring, open and the segment pops out.
HOW TO CLOSE: To close a segment ring, you can use the Ring Opening Pliers to open the ring a little and pop the segment back into place. If the ring is opened a little too far, you may need Ring Closing Pliers to close the ring tightly to ensure it doesn't open accidentally.
