CONSTRUCTOR Magnesium electron 43 sketch
EXTático LAB shows a new sketch of a watch concept. The idea is to work with different material, as magnesium alloys. Magnesium is a ligth material with a low weigth. It easy to mechanize but there is to care when the machining. Magnesium is a highly flamable metal, so to avoid that problem, electron 43 alloy includes rare earth.
Constructor concept is coated with keronite, a Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) surface treatment technology. to be applied magnesium alloys as electron 43, AZ61, aluminium as well. Keronite gets a hradnes until 2000 HV, strong adhesion, wear resistance with minimal fatigue due to 5 microns fro layer.
The movement would be the EXT TIPO 1 is based on ETA 6498 but it has been modified with new bridges as picture.
Strap would be PVC + poliester fibres with leather imitation.
This watch would be make in Spain in our workshop here in Spain.
