    Does anyone know if the gold SS have a diamond like coating? I can’t seem to find an answer anywhere.

    Its just polished like the silver stainless steel so it will scratch

    If it’s titanium nitride it should be fairly scratch resistant.

    There is no confirmation that it will include a DLC finish, my thoughts are that it will be exactly like the regular stainless, so it will show scratches. I don't know how the Gold will react if using a polishing cloth to remove the scratches.

    Hi Karim,
    It is a PVD process. Thanks.

    It is PVD. Will be interesting to see how it wears, but should be a pretty sturdy finish.

    If it’s anything like the PVD coating on the stainless bands for the space gray iPhone X, it should be fairly durable. The negative side would be that you can’t use a polishing cloth on PVD coding if it does scratch, because it will remove the finish due to abrasives from the cloth.

    I don’t polish my SS now. I’m fine with minor scratches.

    It’s PVD, this was confirmed in an email to me from Stan Ng from Apple.
