My list is becoming huge, and it's not going to be easy to "sneak" even one in under the Mrs. radar. They kind of stand out.

    +1 on the Sea Turtle. Great entry-level bronzo... The "domed sapphire" is a BIG plus!

    I will be posting pics of the 40mm Helson Bronze black dial I got on Monday. It's awesome! It's over priced! And if there's no photos it didn't happen, but it did

    It's dangling outside in the salt air, waiting for an incoming strap. I'm going el natural on the patina bit.

    My wife said I shoulda gotten the B18 Lum Tec -- I may agree, but the Bronze Helson SD is the true barbaric nautical vibe diver. I had the 42mm, but too clunky. I do not like the SS SD one iota

    Yes, the bronze layers darken with patina, making the stripes more contrasting, I believe.
