Our watches made out of 316L Brushed stainless steel, hardened mineral glass and waterproof up to 10 ATM. This is our premium styles.
What are you doing with materials, colours and textures?
We’re exchanging the leather straps into vegan leather. The quality has improved a lot and it’s now hard to tell the difference between real vs. vegan leather. And the real bonus is that it’s not made from the skins of dead animals.
