DIY Watchmaking Kit | Vintage Dress Watch - DWC-Mosel Series Details:

A DIY watch kit for those who like skeleton dress watches. A domed sunray skeleton dial lets you enjoy the inner working of the tried and true Miyota mechanical movement. Acrylite 8N / K1 glass vintage domed crystal on both the front and the back allows us to slim down the profile of the watch significantly so you can enjoy an elegant mechanical vintage timepiece.

K1 Hardened Glass vs Acrylite 8N:

Our Mosel case comes in 2 variants, one with K1 glass and the other with Acrylite 8N. Acrylite 8N is a high-quality acrylic that will give you the most authentic vintage look, while K1 glass will offer a balance between the vintage vibe and practicality as it is much harder than acrylic and offers a vastly improved anti-scratch capability (even better than other mineral crystal watches).

K1 glass vs Acrylic crystal for a vintage watch

Our K1 glass Mosel case variant is also decorated with brushed/polished hybrid finishing for a more premium, sophisticated look.
