Materials for watch cases

The materials we choose for the manufacture of our watches

Our wristwatch production is based on a wide variety of materials for cases and bracelets:

Steel - Wood - Acetate - Titanium - Ceramic - Aluminum - Tungsten


We use different steels in terms of price and quality according to customer requirements.
Stainless steel 304 (Cr (18%) Ni (10%) C (0.05%))
316L stainless steel (Low Carbon) is an austenitic steel, characterised by strong resistance to oxidation.
[Cr (16.5/18.5%) Ni (10.5/13.5%) Mo (2/2.25%) C (< 0.03%)]
We apply PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) processing to the steel, as required, which, in addition to the aesthetic effect, adds greater resistance to abrasion and corrosion for custom-designed and produced watches.

Natural wood
Two colours from nature to the fashion watch industry.

The charm of this material that is as 'simple' as it is comfortable to wear in a wristwatch is easy to fall under.
An unusual warmth for a material that has become a protagonist in the collections of many important fashion brands. A declination of the watch, a fashion accessory, that gives vitality to the sector. The use of sandalwood has its roots in antiquity and we liked the warm colour and the feeling it conveys.
Maple is a wood characterized by good toughness and a fine texture with a compact, straight grain.

With its thousand three-dimensional textures, from an eyewear material it becomes a driving force for fashion watchmaking.

Cellulose acetate or diacetate is a synthetic fiber that over time has replaced the use of materials such as tortoiseshell and wood, especially in the eyewear industry.
Thanks to the multifaceted textures that can be created, it has become a widely used material in fashion wristwatches.

Creativity and technological materials in the world of wristwatches, thanks to titanium.

Creativity means taking existing elements and combining them, to compose them, in a new way. The use of titanium for watch cases and bracelets is an example of this. A light yet tough material, it has a high strength-to-weight ratio and unparalleled resistance to corrosion.

"Comfortable" and "pleasant" are synonyms for Rakù, a Japanese term related to ceramics.

This material lends itself well to enhancing the harmony of the shape of the wristwatch by perfectly matching the stones of the ring and enhancing the feeling of purity. Ceramic is a material which, in semantics, reminds us of the "earth of the potters", thus a natural material with high heat resistance, but which in its fashionable declination, with its white color, accentuates steel's shine.

Color and lightness, these are the strengths of aluminium, an optional material.

From engineering to fashion showcases.
The brilliant colors obtained thanks to anodization, together with the brushing or polishing process, give the watch an unparalleled chromatic characteristic.

Continuous research.

Forging, pulling and extrusion are the ways in which tungsten, an extremely strong material, is processed.

Thanks to this extremely high resistance, there have been many applications in industry over time, but in the watchmaking field it has been possible to find an added value: prestige.
Many brands, in fact, have chosen this material for their collections aimed at the market segment that likes to be at the forefront in the field of innovation.
