Bronze case watches, especially dive models, are right on trend now as they say on TV shopping channels, and there’s a great deal to be said for the wonderful ageing process that bronze offers as a material. Your watch tells a story of the key moments in your lifetime, so the colours and hues of bronze are a kind of family shield in some ways. Cool.
What’s cooler is that Florida based Aragon have some discounted prices on their Parma II Bronze model, which features an ETA 2824 Swiss automatic movement, see-thru caseback, depth rating of 200m and comes in 50mm man-sized caseback, or a more everyday 45mm.
The 50mm Meteorite dial model is now $645, although you will have to add some imprt duties and shipping charges on top if you are a UK buyer. The 45mm model is $595, or about £473.
There’s a mother-of-pearl dial option on the Parma, and the Parma Damascus model features a kind of ridged sand pattern on the dial, as if you were viewing the seabed via scuba type goggles.
Great value watches, and Aragon are also on Kickstarter if you want to take advantage of early bird discounts when new projects are announced.
