Nowadays, a lot of Swiss brands are willing to develop new materials in their watch-making process, for example, the famous sports watch brand Hublot, is a pioneer in this field, you can find many amazing Hublot models that are made with different materials that are still not used by other brand watches. But today, I want to create a new topic, it is about bronze watch. In the past, few watches are made with bronze, but more and more brands are now using this material in their watch manufacturing, such as Panerai, IWC, Tudor, and the Zenith I am going to introduce today. In the end of this article, I also make a summary of bronze watches that are available in our market, if you are interested in any of them, please let me know.
First, this Zenith replica watch is made by XF factory, it was just released by the factory one day ago, so on most dealers’ websites, you can not find this watch. The replica is made with solid bronze material, its case, bezel, crown and lugs are all made with bronze, and the watch is very big, which is measured to be 45mm in case diameter, absolutely not including the size of the big crown. So, if you like large pilot watch, this Zenith will be a good choice.
Besides the bronze tone, big face, big hour markers and strong dial lume are another three selling points of this Zenith watch. Zenith Pilot replica watch was published several years ago, but it was not sold very well, I do not think this bronze version will succeed, in our market, few people like to buy Zenith, if they want a bronze watch, they are more willing to choose from IWC, Panerai or Tudor because these brands are more popular than Zenith.
The hour markers are big and are fully applied with luminous material. At the beginning, those markers and hands will show you a strong lume light in dark conditions, they look slightly green even during the day, no matters, the green is exactly in line with the bronze tone, I like it, even I do not like such big watch, it is too big for me.
The Zenith is equipped with one pair of brown leather band that is fitted with big buckle, which is made of stainless steel. The brown leather strap is also a good match of the bronze case, color perfectly matches with each other. Will someone prefer with a bronze buckle? Inside the replica, it is an Asia clone eta 2824 movement, it is lying behind the case back that is fixed by screws, not screw-down.
At last, I share some other bronze watches that are available in our watch market.
