Absolutely stunning watch, really mesmerising dial but the only down side for me was the packaging felt cheap and didn’t suit the watch at all

Spectacular Product

Amazing watch. Great movement, awesome material that ages as you wear it,(even after a couple weeks) and the highlight, the dial is just stunning, got some for my wedding party and they are all unique and look great in their own way. Got a 30$ blue leather strap to match the dial and its a jaw dropper!

Each Salvage Bronze dial was hand patina'd by our artist from the States with his unique recipe. 

A patina refers to the thin layer that appears on the surface of copper to protect it from harm. Time and temperature can change the color of this protective layer; controlled or forced patination can create patina colors like blue, green, and gold. We also use many different materials to alter the appearance of the metals. This includes natural products, chemicals, salt, rain, wood, soil, or fire.

However, patinas cannot be fully controlled. Thus, the patina on every Salvage Bronze dial is one-of-a-kind. This makes every single Salvage Bronze timepiece inherently unique.

We have paired our Salvage Bronze patina dial with a bronze case. As time goes on, the bronze case will form a patina as well. Together, the dial and case will show the passage of time, creating a slightly different artistic piece with each passing moment.

Bottom Layer: A dial contains the recessed indices, the "lume-gutter"
Middle Layer: The hand patina'd dial
Top Layer: Sapphire crystal with AR coating with printed indices

Box-Shaped Crystal

Box-Shaped Crystal aka Top Hat Crystal has the great benefit of allowing to lower the bezel, which makes the watch frame much slimmer.

The drawback is that the manufacturing process is extremely tedious and causes the production price to increase fourfold! The presence of a box-shaped crystal can usually be interpreted as a sin that the brand is not sparing expenses when it comes to quality.

Swiss Super-Luminova

Swiss Super-Luminova(Old Radium) is used on the bezel, dial and hands.

Diamond Cut on Sides

Stamped Caseback

On the back of our Salvage Bronze timepiece, we feature our muse for this creation. Sabrina, the Warrior Mermaid features details such as a full-scaled tail, a fiery trident, and thick hair, Sabrina brandishes courage and charm. 

This warrior mermaid is the ideal guardian of the ocean—and your wrist.
