I’m going to need to see more pictures of this.
Everything’s chrome in the future!
Oh my god. I am dying here.

It’s a PVD coating. Quite a few groupbuys with brass plates have been using it as an option for the finish. This is done in a ‘silver’ finish but commonly they’re done in a reflective bright brass. Apparently steel can also be PVD coated.
I love the look of it, even if it attracts all of the fingerprints!
Here is my first board that would qualify as a custom I believe. (Also have Novatouch, VA68M, and KBPv60)

Very interesting. Pretty swank. Does it look like there are visibile machining lines in the case along the sides? (PVD doesn’t hide much due to its low layer thickness.) I can’t quite tell because of all the reflections going on. This is one of my concerns in working with PVD. The substrate has to be more or less cosmetically perfect before it goes into be coated. And then once it’s on there if you find a defect, it’s very expensive to re-work.
That’s definitely going to be a thing if I can at all manage it. My experimenting with various PVD finishes is actually why I haven’t launched it yet. Soon though.
