It's not painted, it's gold or platinum, I'm not too sure exactly how the bezel itself is made. I think that first the raw ceramic powder is pressed into a mould at about 300 tonnes, the numerals are machined, the bezel is fired then the whole bezel is plated with either gold or platinum via PVD (Physical Vapor Discharge) the bezel is polished back to leave the polished ceramic and plated numerals. Check out the video on their site, apparently takes 40 hours, possible just marketing bull....

A cube of side 8 cm was painted red yellow and green on opposite faces it was cut into cubical boxes each of size 2cm ans the foll- no of cubes with 1 2 and 3 sides painted?

The colors don't matter. And I'm having to assume from your description that you mean that the smaller cubes have sides of length 2 cm long. Thus, there are 64 cubes. 8 have three sides painted. 24 have two sides painted. 24 have one side painted. 8 have no sides painted.

A rectangular solid is painted and then sliced into 54 cubes how many of the resulting cubes have no faces painted one face painted two faces painted three faces painted?

It depends on how the rectangular solid is built. If the side of a cube is "a", then your original solid could be a x a x 54a, or a x 2a x 27a, or 2a x 3a x 9a or one of quite a few others, and the answer depends on the one you specify.

Why are mirrors painted red on the backside?

Mirrors are painted red or gray on the back to make the glass reflective. If the back of the mirror was not painted a mirror would only be a sheet of glass. The paint also protects the reflective surface from being scratched on the back.
