By TLex Here it is, the HELBERG CH1 Bronze prototype watch, made from CuSn8 Bronze alloy, the bronze alloy considered most aesthetically pleasing for its warm reddish tones and rich patina that it develops.

Whether you keep it pristine or allow a dark patina to form, CuSn8 just looks good! It takes the CH1, which is already a very special looking watch by all accounts and makes it extraordinary.

Many of the CH1's intriguing characteristics have been borrowed from the legendary Rolex Deep Sea Special (DSS) experimental watch.

However HELBERG have tweaked and re-engineered the design so that, whilst it incorporates all that we love about the DSS;

its monstrous spherical crystal, the huge lug plates and oversized crown, the watch is right up to date and is (more importantly) wearable.
