Recently we joined Wempe for their annual press presentation and during this event they also showed us some of their novelties. Bronze is becoming more and more popular for watches which is very understandable. As the bronze case creates a unique patina in little time the watch gets it’s own look. Depending on your personal taste this process can be influenced for a more extreme look or undone. So it was great to see the Wempe Zeitmeister Sport Taucher Chronograph in bronze which is limited to 100 pieces.
Wempe Zeitmeister Sport Taucher Chrono Bronze
The Wempe Zeitmeister Sport Taucher Chronograph Bronze measures 45 mm which fits very comfortably on the wrist. It comes on a nice and thick alligator strap which has white stitching for extra contrast. Where the bezel has the same bronze colour the dial is a bit darker with contrasting subdials. This gives the watch a great look and makes is different from the usual black. We got to compare a brand new version with one that has ben worn for some time. This way you can clearly see how the bronze gives this watch it’s own look after some time. Even the strap changes into a robust and sturdy look which makes a great combo with the cool look of the bronze patina.
As mentioned the Wempe Zeitmeister Sport Taucher Chronograph Bronze is limited to only 100 copies and is available at the Wempe boutiques in Germany or in some other capitals around the world. The watch retails for 5.975 euro. Below some more information about this watch from Wempe itself.
Unique in design, function and material.
The Sport Diver’s Chronograph satisfies all functional requirements. Coming in a 45-mm case, the elapsed seconds are indicated by a center chronograph hand; the elapsed minutes and up to 12 hours are shown on two recessed totalizers. A small seconds subdial is placed at 9 o’clock and its continuously running seconds hand allows to check the watch’s function. The Bronze Chronograph is water-resistant to 30 bar.
Theses watches have a screwed-in titanium case back featuring a high-relief engraving of the Glashütte observatory, where every Zeitmeister Diver’s Chronograph has to pass the official chronometer test. It is equipped for this purpose with a specially designed balance cock and fine adjustment.
“Increasingly unmistakable with every second that passes”.
Bernhard Stoll, Member of the Board of Directors
Besides its precise movement and masterful workmanship, the Zeitmeister Bronze Chronograph has one outstanding property: its uniqueness. Right from the first time it is worn, bronze starts to form its very own patina and shows thus genuine personality.
