Proxima Uni-dive Onunion
Proxima company was founded in 2016, as a small independent brand to deliver timepieces with soul. We seek to modernise and redefine the concept of tool watches, drawing inspiration from historic timepieces from the 21th century.
We have, in a short span of time, grown into a brand that's appreciated by collectors and enthusiasts. Within months of our brand's creation our customers created an online owners' club
Good design can and should evolve over time, and it's possible to build fine timepieces and dispense with unnecessary overheads and fanciful stories.
We keep production volume manageable, so that we can always stay engaged with our customers. Be assured of a unique ownership experience.
Sw200 Nh35 9015 Mechanical movements, with their high level of craftsmanship and precision engineering, cost far more than quartz movements and are preferred for use in higher-end timepieces.
Unlike the standard, no-frills quartz watches that run on batteries, mechanical timepieces are powered by energy stored and harnessed through an intricate clockwork of tiny gears and springs, a technology that preceded quartz watches by almost a thousand years.
Our timepieces predominantly use mechanical movements.SW200 NH35 9015 Using the know-how we've acquired over many years of hands-on experience, we've curated a selection of self-winding (automatic) and hand-wound mechanical movements. These have been chosen for their class-leading reliability, robustness and smooth second hand sweep that's seen in fine timepieces. They're easy to maintain and should run trouble-free for many years.
Stainless steel is a type of surgical steel with hypoallergenic properties. It's also marine grade as it has good strength and corrosion resistance. These properties make it one of the most commonly used materials for timepieces.
Regarding black case,what we used is modern IPS (Ion palting stainless steel ) rather than traditional PVD workmanship, what is the strength for this workmanship is that pressure resistance,more durable in color, more stable,it is higher level than PVD
Cusn 8 bronze raw material are imported from GERMAN, the oxidation, glossiness ,hardness are totally different with normal bronze on the market, The oldest alloy known to mankind, bronze is widely associated with the marine environment. Not to be mistaken for brass, bronze has better mechanical properties and is more corrosion-resistant. Phosphor bronze in particular is considered marine grade, with higher strength and corrosion resistance than most other bronze alloys. In recent years bronze has become a popular material for higher-end timepieces.
Each bronze case is milled from a solid block of phosphor bronze and will develop a unique patina based on the environment it's exposed to, making it truly yours. The patina can also be removed as and when desired.
GRADE 5 TITANIUM
Titanium are divided into grade 1-5 as per color ,hardness , we pick up Grade 5 Titanium as the raw material since the color is more closer to stainless steel , and hardness is better than other level,at the very begining, grade 5 titanium is the engineer's preferred metal, widely used in military, aeronautical and aerospace applications because of its strength, lightness and durability, and its non-magnetic and hypoallergenic properties make it very suitable for watch cases.what is the most, it is also a kind of technical worksmanwhip.
Use of titanium has in recent years become popular in higher-end timepieces and the fact remains that it's more costly and difficult to produce and harder to work with, compared to stainless steel.
Corundum, also known as sapphire, has a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale of 1 to 10, and is surpassed in hardness only by diamond. Our current range of timepieces are predominantly fitted with crystals made of sapphire.
Compared to mineral glass and acrylic crystals, material and tooling costs are much higher for sapphire. All our sapphire crystals are double-domed and have anti-reflective coating on the underside and while this further increases costs, it also improves readability and shatter-resistance.
Now sapphire are aso widely used for insert since it is easy to do different kinds of color to mach the watch dial, that is the ceramic cannot reach, also, the hardness ,scratch resistance are better than ceramic and aluminium piece,also,you cn do any lume you prefer.
