    Re: She's arrived. Bronze BS 100 in the house and I'm speechless!

    Just a quick update as I have now had my Bronze BS100 for over a week now.
    Firstly, everytime I either strap it to my wrist or pick it up, I am still blown away at the casework finishing. The brushed and polished surfaces really give it a jewel like quality. It won't be like this forever though as over time, when the patina starts evolving, it will take on a whole new persona and I can't wait.
    The lume has also really impressed me. It really glows and is easily readable all through the night. The applied DLC markers on the dial also glint in the sun due to their polished finish and make the dial a pleasure to look at.
    Bezel action is super smooth and precise and the insert is of a quality I have never seen. The yellow accents really pop.
    As for the strap, well you just can't go wrong with an ISOfrane, and the brown one that comes with this version is beautiful. The brown DLC coated buckle has almost a hint of red in it in some light and it matches the strap and dial perfectly. I don't think there could be a better strap to wear it on although I think I'm going to have a distressed leather strap made with a bronze buckle, just as another option.
    So far against the atomic clock, it is pretty much keeping dead on time. It loses a second over a few days if I do not keep it on my wrist, but if I wear it constantly it's as accurate as a mechanical movement could be.
    So as you have probably guessed, there is nothing negative I can say about this wonderful watch and it's only going to get better as I let it patina naturally over time.

    Cheers

    Jay.

    Congrats Jay, Looks spectacular! Best looking bronze out there IMO. I've got the BS 100N in the air at the moment. I'm excited to see it in the flesh. Thanks for sharing the pix/review. Real nice.......

    I've never been a bronze watch guy, but that's beautiful. If they made it in the 300 I'd be all over it!
