I just wantto share my happiness… Bronze, since my Orange Polluce since a while has been my good partner I have the feeling… need more Bronze, so I got a Magrette Bronze ( pretty nice piece also ) and finally had the opportunity to get a new member in my collection the Dino Zei Glauco Bronze.
Always I appreciate the Dino Zei Line and I have not really good feeling about the case shape and because the lack of Anonimo timepieces down here in Florida I never had before the opportunity to have one in my hands… pictures are as a reference but nothing compare if you try it in your wrist.
I was in love with the Dino Zei Aeronauta since first time I saw it, so this feeling take me to get this amazing piece… and I was correct in my decision because is so comfortable the size is just perfect and the amazing dial is justreally nice, the combination of clack , red and turquoise is very nice and thehour indexes detail of the chrome applied on each one make it so nice.
As we see in many pictures some of the bronze pieces came from factory with some dark patina ( almost black) in all the case looks nice but is not my idea of bronze I prefer the satin or brushed look … so I start to find information about how to restore his shiny warm bronze color.
I want to make this in house project so I contact Kazim Kenzo from “ Kazimon Timepieces “ , and I ask how to restore the vivid color of Bronze but with out make it too shiny… just get back his natural color… and he told me to first try TOOTH PASTE… apply all over the case and leave it for like 2 hours then after remove the tooth paste with a paper towel… applying pressure enough for the patina come off from the timepiece ( the dark tone all over the case ).
So thankful about Kenzo he was so helpful… so this is the results :
I. This was the condition of my Glauco ( you can see the dark bronze color...patina ) :
II. First layer of TOOTH PASTE :
III. After the removal of the paste with a paper towel, you can see the cleanest color... less dark patina :
IV. I was really happy with the removal of the dark patina but still want it more vibrant bronze color... So second layer of TOOTH PASTE :
V. After the removal i was so satisfied with the results more cleaner Bronze :
VI. But, want it more Bronze cleaner look... So i get my FABULUSTRE polishing cloth ( usually used for polishing gold ) this remove tarnish so i think can be useful on bronze and this was the result after rub surface and I like it a lot because is pure Bronze and the patina is going to be NO DARKER :
