Sorry for the not-so-great pics. I never claimed to be a skilled photographer.
Regarding the watch, I absolutely love it; details are flawless, build is solid. Runs at about +4sec/day. If I have any critiques, it's that it's a little heavier than I'm used to, but hey, when you buy a watch rated to 3000m with a 7mm thick crystal and a 4mm caseback, what do you expect? All things considered, I absolutely love it. H/t to Elshan.
Final note: Elshan offered these with forced patinas, but I opted to receive mine copper-penny new and let it age the old-fashioned way, as this is my first bronze. In just the last two weeks it's started taking on a light rainbow-to-brown patina. I'll try to take a pic tomorrow in some light that does it justice.

Elshan had some QA issues with the Abyss cases, so he had to delay shipping to the Kickstarter backers by about four months. Lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth on KS, but now that pretty much everyone has received theirs, they're getting rave reviews.

Yeah, looked it up and saw that after i posted.
Finally found the time to experiment with artificial patina on my Armida A1 brass, pretty happy with the end result.
I simply let the watch soaking in fumes from a mixture of cider vinegar and one hard boiled egg overnight. Very cool.
n1kO, the patina on your Armida A1 looks great! Well done!
