New Limited Edition!

Return to the Bronze Age with the new Luminox Sport Timer Limited Edition bronze automatic watch.

Bronze case - Distinctive style

Bronze is an alloy of copper dating back thousands of years BC. Dating back to around 1000 BC and historically used for marine material because of its resistance to saltwater corrosion. It ages beautifully over time and develops a unique patina. This is one of the properties that distinguishes it from other precious materials such as gold and silver: as soon as it comes into contact with oxygen or water, the oxidation process begins. This process gives the watch a special greenish patina.

The patina of each bronze watch is unique to each watch owner and depends on the environment (oxidation occurs more quickly in wetter climates), the type of wear (how intensively the watch is used) and the body chemistry of the wearer. It is this distinctive style that makes the new Luminox Bronze Sport Timer irresistible to avid watch collectors.

waterproofness

When Luminox was founded on the Pacific Coast, it was with the express purpose of designing, developing and manufacturing the best diving watches in the world. This tradition continues with the Bronze Sport Timer. Outdoors, bronze only oxidizes on the surface. This process is the result of protecting the material from its environment. This means that the patina that develops protects the watch, thus extending its life and increasing its durability. With that in mind, it's only logical that Luminox created a bronze diver's watch that's pressure-tested and water-resistant to 200m.

design details

The bronze gives it a classy vintage look, but is paired with modern anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a black sandblasted ceramic ring on the unidirectional rotating bezel, and 15 LLTs (which ensure visibility in the dark for up to 25 years - without recharging), so that this timepiece can be used in almost all modern day (or night) conditions.

cleaning

There are many easy do-it-yourself methods for polishing a bronze watch that can be found online. Although these methods can be successful, it is always recommended to have a bronze watch cleaned by a professional. This can avoid unnecessary damage to the watch, because the patina actually serves to protect the case. Removing the patina makes the case more vulnerable to environmental influences and can lead to possible damage.

The most common do-it-yourself method is cleaning with lemon or vinegar and salt: mix the salt with either fresh lemon juice or vinegar. Then use a toothbrush to gently rub the mixture onto the bronze case of the watch. It is best to use a soft toothbrush. Then rinse the watch with lukewarm water after making sure the crown of the watch is properly closed.

Packaging

Packed in our signature Luminox box, the watches are sealed in vacuum bags. As soon as these bags are opened, the patination process (oxidation) begins.
