Bronze Watch Bemusement

‘On Time’ is back with another focus episode in which we discuss bronze watches. Also joining us again is certified master watchmaker Manuel Yazijian to offer his expert opinion and experience. What are the pros and cons to using bronze for a watch case? Why aren’t there many (if any) vintage bronze watches? Shenanigans ensue when we discuss the good, the bad, the ugly, and the patina.

  1. I think Tudor actually mixes some aluminum into their bronze mixture. I’m not sure how that affects the hardness, but it supposedly slows the patina. Also, there are a couple of non-divers out there in bronze- Archimede and Zenith both make bronze pilots.
