    Is the process of gold plating similar to electroforming? I've got some buddies in my field of work that focus on electroforming, specifically copper onto glass. I was wondering if their equipment could be used to plate my Watch from SS to gold?

    Haha I know, I've read the wiki page for that already. I just want to know if the same equipment/chemicals/tools for copper plating are suitable for gold plating stainless steel. I'm a DIY kind of person, so I'd love to plate it myself rather than spending $400 to do so.
