Can you do something about the SS crown? It really clashes with the bronze.

You have an option to have the crown and case back PVD coated free of charge

Sorry sir but you are dead wrong on this one.  The 385.00 Magrette is solid CuSn8 bronze.  And Dion did this without charging more than his PVD version of the same watch.  Granted it only has a Miyota 8215 just like the Miyota version of the A-1 and is only water resistant to 150 feet but damn it looks good and gets better as it patinas.....Not a very nice post sir......

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 $

Very nice watch and I am glad you explained why the high cost.   I own one of those 400.00 bronze watches and they are nice they and really look good when they patina also they use the same CuSn8 bronze .  He may have gotten a deal as he made 500 to start and sold them all and is making an additional 500 next year and the water resistance is only 150 feet  Honestly if you could lower the price more I think you could sell 100's of these as many people shy away from bronze due to these huge price increases from the same model......just a though

I remember to the bronze-discussion with Kazimon last year.

Its a lot harder to work with bronze like CuSn8 than stainless steel and therefor a lot more expensive too.
400 $ for a CuSn8 bronze watch (same alloy use Panerei) are miraculous.

I know I am very late to this discussion, but I would pay for quality titanium with an ETA-2824-2 movement.

The A1 is a beautifully designed watch making it heavier is in the opposite direction that I would prefer.
