Full watchmaker tool kit

We are here to help


Our first watchmaking kit with a real bronze case made of a copper alloy (bronze) with 8% tin content (CuSn8). Over time the case will change its colour and develop a beautiful patina. This new case measures just 36mm and fits ideally on slightly smaller wrists, while retaining the robustness and durability of a real tool watch.

The new bronze TW features our matte black dials with an embossed centre and printed luminous hour markers. Above the dial, our new gold coloured, lume filled hands capture the warm tone of the bronze case and contrast with the matte black of the dial below.

Underneath the dial, you will find the reliable and precise NH-38A automatic watch movement. This mechanism drives your watch purely powered by the movement of your wrist and benefits from a sweeping second, 48 hour power reserve and hacking seconds feature.


As this is a real bronze case, please note that when the case arrives it will be of a golden colour and develop its vintage patina over time. Please also note that a bronze case can develop a skin reaction, if worn over a long period of time. Using a stainless steel case back, greatly reduces this risk, but if you notice any skin changes, please stop wearing your watch for a while.


Containing all parts, tools and instructions our kits are an ideal start into the world of horology. Learn more about the way a watch ticks, its origins and how to assemble your own automatic watch at home. 

Your kit contains a detailed instruction booklet as well as access to our step-by-step video guides available on our homepage (click here for an example) to assist you through the assembly.

Safety notice: Please note that these kits are not toys and are unsuitable for children of any age. They contain small parts which can be swallowed as well as sharp tools. Please always handle the tools (especially tweezers) with utmost care and caution. Keep the ends away from your eyes, skin or any other person or animal.
