We have created two special 100ATM models in bronze which are totally unique. Bronze is made of a combination of copper and tin, bronze also has some natural properties that set it apart from other MWC models made of stainless steel or titanium. The main difference is that bronze doesn't corrode in the same way as other metals, once it's manufactured it soon begins to develop a patina to protect it from damage and every watch develops this patina in a unique way so whilst every watch starts off looking exactly the same after a short time no two watches will look identical because the patina will be slightly different, it is this particular characteristic which makes bronze so desirable, interestingly even saltwater and brine can’t penetrate or damage bronze, despite the retro vintage look of bronze watch cases, the material was only used for the first time in watches less than 30 years ago even though bronze is one of the oldest metals known to man and was first made before 3000 BC!

The MWC "Depthmaster" range Military Diver models are MWC's latest heavy-duty range and are both extremely robust with a sapphire crystal as well as being suitable for diving with mixed gases at extreme depths due to the 100atm water resistance rating, they also have a wider strap at 24mm (most military divers watches use a 20mm strap) and a non-scratch ceramic bezel which is easier to grip in extreme cold. These watches are specifically designed for use by professional divers under very challenging conditions.

All MWC 100ATM models have a helium escape valve, people often ask us how helium gets into a dive watch in the first place and the answer is very simple, essentially a helium molecule is amo
