316L stainless steel - Tough and resistant to corrosion
All LOUIS XVI watches are made out of 316L stainless steel. It's the same steel that is used to manufacture surgical instruments, which rely on toughness and resistance to corrosion.
So what is the difference between 316L stainless steel and regular steel? In essence 316L stainless steel contains less carbon than the standard 316 steel and therefore is a lot less prone to corrosion caused by acids contained in sea water and sweat.
A watch made out of 316L stainless steel is the perfect fit for people with an active lifestyle. You can be assured that your watch will withstand every challenge.
