Bronze Quartz, who makes them ?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for one as a gift, 40mm (ish). So far the only one I've come up with is a San Martin, everything else is PVD coated or similar, any ideas anyone ?

Thank you.

This has been an interesting search. The watch is for a friend with impaired dexterity, so even setting a watch (which I do for them) is not possible let alone winding, or moving in relation to keeping an automatic running. Anything I've seen in mobility catalogues are pretty horrible. It's interesting that Brass/Bronze cased watches command a premium price, yet you can still buy a chromed brass cased Vostok new for around £35, and as a couple of forum members have proved, they can be easily de-chromed with some strong lavatory cleaner. De-chromed non date Vostok with a quartz movement shoved in. Now there's food for thought. :hmmm9uh:

I, surprisingly, found a Bronze Christopher Ward "homage" with some weird logo placed in the proper criticized position as well. The words "depth" and "plummet" spring to mind .

The only Bronze quartz watch I am aware of is the Zelos ZX mecha-quartz chronograph ( Cusn8 marine bronze). I believe they used the Seiko VK67 quartz movement . Probably sold out by now though and hard to find . Their sister company ,Ventus ,also produced a brass chronograph with the VK67 quartz movement , cheaper with a similar look , but again may be hard to find .
