Very interesting watches and engraving themes have come across my table. This one is no exception.
The watch is Halios “Tropik B” in bronze and the engraving theme is Pacific Northwest Coast native art. Think Tlingit, Tsimshian etc. It took me quite a while to get accommodated with the style and its composition rules, looked through quite a few books and videos. It was completely different and new to me, but also very interesting. And challenging. I like challenges.
Here’s the result.

So the case is not steel, but bronze. Ho did you do it? It was by hand or you used a machine?
It is all hand engraved using air assist graver.
Is it doable on my stainless steel watch? Steel is much harder???
How much does it cost a good air assist graver? 300$? 500$?
Yes, stainless will be allright. Good air assists start at around 700-800 and go up to 3000 (Lindsay Classic AirGraver).
