Seiko Palladium D229-5010

Coated For A Reason?

Here's something a little different, well this time, by the finish. The case itself gives a yellowish hue under normal light, unlike the typical reflection made by stainless steel. It is coated by palladium, that could be better told under a magnifying glass. What's the purpose, maybe someone can tell me.

The front buttons provide instant access to all functions, including 3 individual alarms. And it belongs to the same era of the D409, where dot matrix display was something new. The original bracelet is a plus. All front buttons work fine, not going to take it apart as the membrane underneath could be too weak to be tempered. But still need to clean the crown and the light button for better response. More exercise then!
