Hi to all.
The BS-100 Bronze just came and I wanted to share some pictures and impressions.
Overall, the watch is pretty much everything I had hoped for -- fun to wear, great fit and finish, and superb timekeeping (spot on after three days). The bronze case has an even, lustrous sheen and is beautifully machined. The bezel turns in a satisfying, positive manner and the triangle aligns perfectly at 12 o'clock. The crown operates as it should. The raised markers are beautiful, as is the deep black dial. I really like the overall aesthetic of this watch -- better in person than in pictures. It's unique -- nothing quite like it.
Quibbles? Only a couple. The white printing on the dial is 'perfect' with the naked eye, and my close-up vision is excellent. Under a loupe, the printing is a little less clean, saturated, and precise than on a couple of other watches (e.g., Rolex Sub and Dagaz Tsunami) -- not a big deal. Second, the date is almost centered in its window, but just the tiniest bit low -- again, not critical.
Communications with Steve Hughes and others at Aquadive have also been excellent. Thanks also to Ariel Soltura for his assistance with my order and communications with Aquadive.
All in all, I have no hesitation recommending the BS-100 Bronze. It is a great blend of practical, functional, beautiful, and different. You can tell that our yellow lab is also a huge fan!
