It is kind of a sales pitch but it does a credible job of explaining the process with photos.
Now that Vortic Watch Company offers solid bronze cases, we wanted to share some info about your new/future bronze Vortic watch.
Bronze cases not only provide beauty off the line, but they also build a unique character with age. Bronze naturally patinas over time, causing your case to darken in color and become even more one-of-a-kind!
Patina occurs through the process of oxidation. Oxygen in the air and the oils from your skin react with the bronze to produce a warm, dark brown. This process occurs naturally on copper and copper alloys like bronze and brass. However, your case will interact with your individual lifestyle and environment to mature into a piece that you can't find anywhere else.
In the image above, you can see the case as it will arrive on the left and after a fairly short period of being worn on the right. The case is completely shiny when it comes off of our CNC mills, but we put our 12s bronze cases through a pre-patina process here at the Vortic shop so we can ensure a beautiful patina once the watch is on your wrist
