DIY Vintage Dive Watch Kit - Watch Dial, Watch hands & Bezel Insert Aging Experience 

Our Dive watch DIY watch kit with an amazing twist! Create your very own vintage dive watch by aging your components!

This kit comes with extra dials and hand sets so you can age your components following our detailed guides on aging. (check out our video below!) Create your very own unique patina for the dials and hands and assemble them into your very own vintage sports watch.

A brown leather strap that will naturally develop patina has been paired with this diver. Upgrade this kit with a sapphire top hat crystal to achieve your perfect vintage diver :)

NEW ADDITION: We have also included an aluminum bezel that we made specifically for bleaching!

Note: The full experience will require an oven, some coffee grounds and bleach. These household items can be easily acquired so we won't be including them in our kit.

This is our Pro Tool Kit, a DWC in-house design from top to bottom. This is a lot more than a mere step up from standard Amazon watch-making tools; it is a collection of tools we designed and crafted to give you the best watchmaking experience possible.

And in watchmaking, just like many other crafts, the quality of the tools does affect the quality of the outcome.
