BRM has just launched two bronze models. The first of the French manufacturer. People who used high-tech materials or seldom used materials in the watch industry (such as titanium, carbon, metal and Marcoron) chose a metal away from motor sports this time as we are more easily connected to the marine universe.
The particularity of bronze? This metal is composed of copper and tin. The initial appearance of this metal is reminiscent of red gold, with the difference that it oxidizes over time and forms the natural copper oxide “patina” (“green”). -de-gris “) to prevent corrosion. Bronze can be done according to the climate, humidity and use. In short, the aging time in each case is more or less different. What makes it different.
