Good case, great customer service

I used this case for a 1950s explorer homage, nh38 movement, old lume hands, explorer 36mm v3 case because the old 50s watches were typically in 36mm cases. Solid product, case looks great. This is my 5th mod I have purchased and built on this website. Fast delivery and as always awesome customer support. I will be buying more parts in the future.

Sharp case! Went well for my wife’s new watch

Excellent Quality

I researched many different explorer style cases (with bracelets) before buying this one. It truly exceeds my expectations in terms of looks and build quality. The overall finishing of the case and bracelet is beautifully done. The bracelet is comfortable and I was able to size it down to fit my 14.9cm wrist.

I chose the “build your own watch” option with watch assembly. I had many questions before I felt ready to order and Adriel was quick to respond as we emailed back and forth. He gave very helpful and insightful answers which I appreciated a lot! Made the buying experience that much better knowing he actually cared.

Oh and lastly, the shipping was so fast, especially considering I was having the watch assembled!

Assembled Explorer Case

Very nice watch case that's the perfect size for my small wrist with the 43mm lug to lug length. Assembled as a complete watch case for me by LA. I opted to go without the metal bracelet. The detail on the snowflake dial is quite special and goes well with the tudor style hands.

Beautiful finish, Perfect size

This case is just as well finished as my SARB035 and was the perfect base for the open-heart, “black” dress watch I’ve been working on.

Perhaps the best 36mm Explorer mod case

I’ve tried the others W&S, Namoki, Crystaltimes, even the style accurate Riyi case. This one is a good head and shoulders above the rest. For starters, the finishing of the case and bracelet is better than the rest of them. Although the Riyi case is true to the original design, there’s sharp edges and questionable fitment between aftermarket parts. The other companies all look a bit off. This Lucius Atelier case is the perfect mix with the design accuracy, quality and finishing, and compatibility with OEM and aftermarket parts. Yeah, it’s a price point above the rest, but I wish I got this first instead of dabbling with the others.

I also got this with the bracelet. My only naggle is that fitting the end links with the case was a bit difficult, but I’ve dealt with worse. The finishing of the bracelet and clasp is good, on par with the case. I also appreciate the clasp, which is much better than the standard double lock clasp that you find everywhere else. It has very tight tolerances, nice.

Also, fast shipping.
