The Beater is an everyday wristwatch stripped of complications. Designed to be worn without the anxiety of wear because the case is made to age gracefully over time. This is Batch 2 of the Bronze Beater or BBB2.
One case, two finishes and you can choose. The raw case has been blasted with a coarse medium that creates a wonderful, slightly sparkly, finish. This will not last long, as these cases are designed for those that want the grease of everyday life to change the character of the case over time. The other variety of bronze case is just the same as the raw but has undergone a couple more processes. After this process of dipping and washing, the cases are burnished to reveal the raw metal in select places – bezel, sides, and the edges of the lugs. It will look this way for longer with your own patinations still adding to its character. Powered by a Swiss automatic, ETA 2824-2, the watch is essentially a two and a half hander featuring our Sign-O-Life second hand. The case is 44mm in diameter with a deep laser engraving on the back. The price shown is with UK VAT, if you are outside of Europe then VAT will be deducted at the checkout.
