A bronze watch with beautiful patina

DIY WATCH CLUB - Bronze case (aged and before aged)


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.

DWC PRO WATCHMAKING TOOL KIT: 

DIY Watch Club - Watchmaking tool - Profession Tools box set

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.
