About this project

The TC-9 Navy Watch.   Limited edition of 500 pieces.

Solid Bronze Case.     42 mm wide.    Super Slimline 9.5 mm thick.   Classic cushion case reminiscent of the Navy dive watches of the 1940’s – just smaller, slimmer and more elegant.

Case material is solid Bronze.   Maybe the cheapest Bronze watch ever offered for sale anywhere.  The bronze starts of a rose gold colour and then will patina and age to reflect your experiences.   It can be polished to keep it a rose gold colour or allowed to go almost black with patina.   This is the same Bronze we used in the TC-9 1970’s diver which has sold over 400 units worldwide with loads of great feedback (see thetimebum.com, wristwatchreview.com, our website etc). 

Seiko NH35A movement.  Japanese powerhouse movement that is reliable and accurate.

Scratchproof Sapphire Glass on the front and back of the watch.  Back has a exhibition case back so you can see the movement working away.

10 ATM waterproof.

5 Dials options, including our unique and high quality solid brass dial used on our previous KS campaign – the TC-9 1950s diver.   All dials are two piece sandwich dials and have a double coating of bright super lume

Black PVD or Brass plated Crown.

Leather Strap with solid brass buckle

Risks and challenges

We are a full service watchmaker. We were founded 2 years ago in Basel Switzerland and have recently relocated to England. We have produced 4 watches so far. The TC-9 Piot Watch, the TC-9 1970s Bronze Diver, the TC-9 1950’s Diver watch and the TC-9 Deck Watch. We sell all our watches via a shop fronted Master Watch Maker in Basel Switzerland. We have sold over 1000 watches since we began – including 2 successful KS campaigns. We are well placed to manage the production process and our unusual in the Microbrand world in that we can make and fix our own watches if required. The main risk to this project is that there is a delay with postage .
