    Pics of My new San Marco Bronze

    Hello Mates, Here it is! The case came with a nice patina. I added a dark green python strap with a "bronze" diver deployment strap. I had to cut and re-stitch the strap for my slender english hobbit like wrist! Looks even better than my Drass model (which I have to sell now).

    well it wouldnt let upload the pic of the strap and buckle. The buckle is a diver safety deployment type in stainless steel. To get the color of bronze is easy with a little patience. Clean it well, no fingerprints, dust,etc. Rinse with distilled water (tap water has sediments). Hold the clasp with some needle nose pliers and use a torch on the inside of the clasp. Do this in front of a mirror so you can see how much color you are getting. It will start out with a color of light yellow gold then turn rose gold then dark gold/bronze. If you hold the heat on too long it will just look like dull steel. Quench it in cool distilled water and you are finished! Ill try to get a pic that will upload. Thanks!

    Love what you've done with the buckle, very cool indeed!

    Would love to see some more pics too - loving this piece. I used to own an Ox-Pro version, and would love to get another.

    Mates, I really appreciate all the kind comments! I love talking with good people who share my obsession! A few years ago I was taking a buddy (and a full van load of groomsman) to his bachelor party at a casino in Cali. The drive was about 2 hours and to the dismay of our passengers all we did was talk watches! My buddy is now a Blue Angel pilot with his dream watch, Breitling Emergency with the BA logo! I think there are 15 in existence! What a lucky SOB! Cheers!
