Of course, once I started researching bronze-cased watches, it only seemed that I started uncovering more and more models that mix things up.  Today, we’ll take a look at the B43 Bronze by Zenton.  First off, a little about the Zenton company.

They appear to be a relatively new company on the scene, and specialize in creating limited edition dive watches with Swiss movements, including water resistance of up to 2000 meters (!) on the M45 and V45 models.  They offer pre-built watches, as well as offering an option for you to custom-build your own M45 model.

But, enough about those.  What of the bronzed beauty whose image graces the top of this post?  As with the other bronze watches showcased here on WWR (by Magrette and Helson), the Zenton B43 should gain a lovely patina as it ages, assuring that it won’t be quite like any other that’s out there.  Of course, the limited run of 25 pieces helps to ensure that as well!  If you’re fortunate enough to be able to pick up one of these watches, these are some of the details you’ll experience with your new watch:

  • Bronze case (screw-down crown, case back, and buckle from stainless steel)
  • ETA 2824-2 automatic movement
  • Domed sapphire crystal with AR coating on the inside
  • WR:  500 m
  • Super luminova (take a gander at the lume shot below)
  • 22 mm bands – nylon and rubber

All in all, the Zenton models all seem to offer clean takes on the classic dive watches, adding their own unique twist.  Of course, this very limited edition bronze model is, in my opinion, their most unique.  They’re definitely a brand you should consider if you’re looking to add a new dive watch to your collection.
