    Sea spray and sunshine; my not be the most efficient way to patina a bronze case...but, it's certainly the most entertaining.

    Re: My Bronze Diver addiction!!

    Clive, I love your posts, But how do you go from rolexes and PAMs to wearing micros? I went from micros to omegas, Tudors, and the like and can't go back. I love variety, but I'll throw my orange monster on and then just want to wear my speedy or black bay. I love some of these micros, but the fit and finishing of my higher end watches have spoiled them for me.

    Amazing eye candy in this thread. Agree with you...Bronze cased watches can become quite an addiction.

    You are not the first person to ask me this question.

    I think I am a born WIS as I really do love watches irrespective of Brand!! So I wear any watch that draws me to it, be it £9K Rolex deep-sea or a £100 Seiko 007, so when I saw this Marinez Brass posted up by someone on this thread I fell in love with it, and so far the love has not waned ;))

    Couldn't agree more, I the same as you in that I get equally as much pleasure wearing my micros as I do any of my expensive watches by it the TAG or Breitlings (Rolex now gone but not forgotten). The one thing I like about micros is that they dare to be different rather than just sticky to a tried and tested formula and quite often are design by enthusiasts just like ourselves, sure their fit and finish ain't quite as good but that's half the appeal because you then don't beat yourself up every time it gets a knock.

    Followed your procedure. First time I went too far, immediately cleaned it with a tooth brush and vinegar/baking soda mix, rinsed, and started over. Hoping it smooths out a little.

    The buckle came out awesome, I think. The reddest areas are where my thumb was when I was dipping--one pass holding each side.

    I wanted to see where the patina wentbefore selecting the materials for a custom strap. I have a couple different finishes of toad, and I'm thinking a glossy deep brown like this is going to look better than a natural matte finish. Plus, orange stitching and edges.
