A bronze watch with beautiful patina

 

DIY WATCH CLUB - Bronze watch case comparison

This bronze case is CNC-ed from a block of aluminum bronze. Our formula included a bit of aluminum as it improves the material's mechanical properties and we believe this results in the best patina over time.

Bronze protects itself from corrosion by developing an oxide layer, which gives you the patina that is desired by many watch collectors. The patina will differ depending on how you wear the watch so each bronze timepiece will age into its own unique look. It's one of the very few kinds of watches that gets more beautiful as time passes by.
