Bronze is known to tarnish, creating a rich patina over time, but the
caseback is crafted from stainless steel and features a matte black
plate so it won’t cause any discoloration on the skin. To clean your
timepiece, wipe with a dry, soft cloth. After saltwater use, be sure
to rinse the head with demineralized water and dry thoroughly.

An inside-look at the Bronze Monster watch-movement

a movement of the era

During the 1920s, while some were engineering bootlegging
techniques, others were engineering revolutionary automatic
movements for mechanical watches. The automatic movement
in the Bronze Monster timepiece is far more advanced than
the movements that preceded it. It’s powered from the motion
of your wrist, and with 26 jewels and a 38-hour power
reserve, you can trust this timepiece with lengthy
excursions—no matter what you’re hauling.

Bronze Monster dial-indices glowing in the dark

stealth is key

Like lookout guides in the night, Super-LumiNova indices
radiate from the glossy black dial, providing a clear indication
of the time in dark spaces. The dial features a calendar
aperture and a diver-down flag as the 12 o'clock marker.
