I got finally a bronze piece a Polluce 10 Anni Bronze in Orange dial.
I got it with a shiny look... was polished... I take the risk because the case have many imperfections like scratches and nicks... My defective SD card take away the photos when I go it thats why i can't do a before and after.
First thing come to my mind was call Stoll & Co. because of his highest rate on service and work... BUT they told me " We need to send ALL THE BRONZE PIECES to Anonimo SPA - Italy... we can't perform a refinish on BRONZE PIECES ".
My watchmaker who is my friend, he has beeen done refinish work on my Polluce SS/Gold and the Professionale Crono and i was more than satisfied and just in a couple of days... I take my BRONZE and visit him... He told me that he never touch a timepiece like that ( Bronze material ) but he told me Im going to do his best... So i wasn't too happy about it but I trust on him because his Knowledge... and also I said please let me know when you take apart all the components to take some pictures and video.
Two days after he called me: " Nelson... i can't remove the bezel... I tried and nothing, may be the construction is not the same as the one I do before ( Polluce SS/Gold ) or may be because of the material and I don't want to mess with your timepiece ".
I do a research and ask people who know about the construction and they told me the same : " Polluce... all is the same construction ".
I called back my friend and I told him : " Please try it one more time if you need to apply more force to remove it just do it because I'm 100% sure that is same construction as the one you did before "... He said : " YOU know what can happen right " so I said : " Just do it ".
He call me in the afternoon same day and he said : " Is on pieces now... ready to take your photos ".
Again, he is an High level professional and well experienced watchmaker... Also I required to refinish the case and FORGET about the Sand Blasted finish on the sides and do all the case brushed finish... and when I saw it I was so happy because work was done right as I request... BUT at the moment i take the bezel in my hands I got an Idea... High Polish the side like the SS/Gold have it but the whole side of the bezel... And my final request... High Polish the buckle in order to match the crown and the He valve... Pictures here : Polluce Bronze... MODS !
Because of the lack of a BRONZE BUCKLE... I don't like any on the market right now... I prefer an Anonimo Bronze Buckle... so in the mean time I'm very happy with this mod.
I hope you guys enjoy the pictures and the video :
