Each of our timepieces are made with 316L stainless steel of surgical-grade for high-resistance and to negate any problems with corrosion completely.
Our cases take inspiration from the iconic timespieces of the 1950s, being carefully adapted to suit current sizing standards.
You will receive a slender and aestetically pleasing case with a 49mm lug to lug length and 40mm width, excluding the crown. The proportions of this case are perfectly balanced to ensure all sizes of wrists are accommodated.
The absence of crown guards ensure the versatility of the case, making it ideal for a range of looks from sporty to sophisticated.
The Defender dial has a lacquered finish. The MINT logo, the numerals, and the background texture are all crafted using a hydraulic compression process.
This superb honeycomb background texture, combined with the "Cali dial" design inspiration, gives the watch a unique military aesthetic.

MINT timepieces use elite sapphire crystal. Traditionally, these are only used on high-end luxury watches.
Sapphire glass is a synthetically produced crystal with the equivalent robustness of a diamond. It is 100% scratch resistant and fully shockproof.
An anti-reflective coating has also been applied to the inside of the crystal in order to minimize reflections on the dial.
We only use mechanical movements, and all watches are powered by the NH35 series.

Movements are all subject to thorough and exact accuracy testing and regulation before the watch assembly to ensure optimal performance.
