Keeps getting better!

I built a piece for myself last year with the 36mm explorer case, and the new model with the transparent back is a stunner! I bought this one to build a watch for my best man to wear in my wedding this October, and it turned out beautifully. Always a pleasure working with this company. Their fast, efficient, and conscientious. Will be back soon!

Great Finishing and Fitment

I have yet to use this case and bracelet as I'm waiting for some other parts for it but the finishing on the case and bracelet are very high quality and the fitment of the end links to the case are very good with little to no play between them.

Great finish!

Lucius Atelier 36mm Explorer case (Aftermarket case) looks great in finish. Looking forward to see if the bracelet will fit the case properly. As I also bought a 39mm case, where that wasn't the case.

Outstanding Fit and finish

I had purchased another popular case from ebay and had trouble getting it to run properly, so I picked up this case. The finish alone was worth it, the fact that the second hand actually ticks along no issues is a bonus. If you're looking to do a 36mm Explorer build, go with this case.
