The case of this model is made of bronze. As the watch is worn, oxidization causes the bronze to gradually discolor and develop a patina over time. The degree of oxidization varies depending on the frequency of wear and the environment it is worn in, so the aging process is unique to your individual circumstances. Due to the nature of the bronze material, there may be some oxidization upon delivery. Please be aware of this in advance. No returns will be accepted for this discoloration.

* Please note that due to the nature of the material used for this watch, this product is non-returnable.
