Relojes-Especiales.com is at it again. After two very successful ventures into watch making they are starting a new project GALERNA.
 
After managing and developing two projects (El Buzo, a diver of vintage inspiration, and the Type RE, a pilot chronometer in the style of ’50 -’60), they wanted to go on with a third project called GALERNA, the most ambitious project ever developed in a forum and – as far as I know going beyond what many boutique brands do.
 
There will be three versions and all three have detailed pictures if you follow the link bellow.
 
The versions are as follows:
 

  1. The first metal chosen was grade 5 Titanium. It is significantly stronger than commercial pure titanium. This grade is an excellent combination of strength, corrosion, resistance and weld. The first version offered is Titanium grade 5 with natural finished.
  2.  

  3. For the second version they wanted to go further in the scratch-resistance capacity by giving the titanium a DLC treatment and raising that resistance up to 2000 vickers, having as reference the 140 vickers of the 316 stainless steel. A consequence of this treatment was a black aspect, further enhancing “hard and tactical aesthetics”.
  4.  

  5. The third version & material is an exotic and very special aluminum type bronze.
  6.  

 
Oh and did I mention that they are making 0 money off of this? This is a project from aficionados to aficionados. The goal is €32.307 and it will all be spent on the materials.
