BUCKLE OPTIONS

I offer five buckle options to match your watch's finish or to personalize your MN™ Strap. All my hardware is made from sea water resistant 316 stainless steel or solid marine grade bronze.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE PATINA OF YOUR BRONZE BUCKLES

My customers often ask me what to expect from the patina of my bronze buckles. So here it goes… My bronze buckles are made from solid CuSn8 bronze. This marine grade bronze is the same material alloy as for example Panerai watch cases. This kind of bronze will patina very easy with beautiful tones of brown and black due to a.o. the amount of zinc in the alloy. Tudor watch cases for example patina more slowly because their alloy contains aluminium. Still my bronze buckles work great with Tudor and other bronze cases as well.

When you receive your MN™ Strap it has a coating to prevent it from oxidizing during stitching and transport. This way you can experience the full patina journey of your strap. The coating wears of easily but can also be removed with a little water or alcohol. Each patina will develop differently, depending on the pH value of your skin, your location, your activities and how you wear your watch. The above pictures will give you an impression of what you (can) expect in 4-8 weeks.
