    Re: My Bronze Diver addiction!!

    Sry to ruin the party but not the biggest fan of bronze/brass. For some reason I don't like the look of it on a leather strap, which is why I sold my A1 brass. Beautiful watch though...

    Perhaps its more of a white people/pirate infatuation type of thing... lol I keed, I keed... don't be throwing yo eggs at me

    Re: My Bronze Diver addiction!!

    I've gone from Olivier (good watch, horrible maker) , to Halios Tropik B (Fantastic watch just a bit too small for me on wrist), to Maranez and Armada Brass watches and finally ended up with this under appreciated Helson:


    Buccaneer Bronze on Panatime Prestige Stingray strap.
    This one just felt right all around for me on the wrist and with the look. I do feel leather on bronze is a difficult one to do as rubber, or a waterproof/resistant animal hide, sail cloth, canvas or even a PVD mesh work best for the maritime sentiment a bronze dive watch has.

    Thanks Craustin

    Maranez is from a Spanish supplier on E Bay carlottin1 and the Helson is from Rich at Toshi straps who has a very good website.

    Finally got my PVD shark mesh for the Bronze Buccaneer. Works quite well.
