    It gives me pleasure to see time fly by on a nice watch.

    It's amazing that LOS does for Bronze, It was my first time using it on Bronze and it was definitely more effective than on Brass. I've only dunked it for I think 6-8 times in Los. The effects are way cooler than Brass.

    Honestly mate I can't put my finger on why it came out so good. All I did was use the hot water from the tap and filled the basin and a cup with hot but not boiling hot water, placed the watch case in the basin for a minute whilst I added a couple of drops of LoS to the cup and mixed. After about a minute I dipped the watch head into the cup watching its colour, when it reached the colour you see I removed it and rinsed it under the tap.

    Let it dry naturally and give it a coat of wax.

    The only thing I did different is I didn't dip it in a bi-carb & water mix. But the beauty of bronze is if it's not right first time you can strip the patina and try again.
