I received a few requests for a A1 in bronze and I would like to know what you guys think about.

We have to do 50 pcs and I have no  idea how big the interest really is.

 I did my homework and searched through forums and see what others offer, but don't understand how some can offer a bronze watch for about $400

 We get it only done by CNC and that is quite expensive

 I would appreciate your feedback if you think the bronze trend is over or will still last and there is a market and if you would buy one

If we do it the sales price must be something around 1200 $

Might be cool, but IMO the bezel should be solid, not insert.

I think it'd make for a cool watch...ThumbsUp02.gif


 

Who makes a bronze watch for 400$? How often do you have to feed the mini-rat inside running the mvt?dog smile.gif

I think bronze would be very handsome on this design. Would love to see some drawings if you make any changes to the bezel, etc.

$1200 is reasonable for a bronze, with an ETA movement, I think.

Thanks so far , I just needed a little push.
We will do it and I cannot wait to wear it.
It will be done with a solid as a inlay bezel.
 I will see how many different dial colors we can get.
 As soon as I have more infos I will post it and I will listen to your suggestions but please understand if we an cannot follow all of them.

Chris, Put me down for one
...it will be my first bronze, will it have the same domed crystal? That would be a major plus imho.

I think a price point of $1200 is reasonable. It would need to have the ETA movement and domed sapphire crystal. Solid bronze bezel is MUCH preferred. If you could make it with a dark green dial, brass hands, and vintage lume like on the Panerai PAM 382, that would look SO amazing!

Hi Chris and all friends here:
I am also interested to get bronze A1(s)...and I believe brown dial, dark green dial, or full lumed dial
brass hands
solid bezel with lume
When above matching the highly domed crystal, leave all words in the air...

bronze would be interesting

also an a1 version with a steel insert would also look good imho (similar to typhoon)

would you do bronze bracelet for bronze a1?

So our idea is now 4 dial colors

Black,
dark green, brown and Armida A3 blue
Crown and caseback in titanium
Of course the highly domed sapphire and an ETA 2824 movement
Solid bezel or an  inlay bezel as option
As we don't know how many of each version I will try do do it like a pre order, because in that way you can also choose your case finish and a PVD coating on crown an caseback if somebody is interested
But  no choice for the serial number

 The hands will be brass and brushed
 Dial design like on the steel A1

Sorry but have to say no for a bronze bracelet .

First it will be much to expensive and second it will turn your wrist black
 But we can get  buckles in bronze
