    Best finished bronze 3-hand sub $5k?

    All,

    What do you think is the best finished bronze 3-hand watch that can be found reasonably easily for no more than $5,000? Interested in absolute quality rather than value for money here.

    Thanks!

    For a lot less than your budget I was pretty pleased with the finish on the bronze C60.

    Bronze Kontiki seems like a good one.

    I ended up with the Car Brashear, and I love it. I'm still interested in getting more input...

    Eterna would be my recommendation!!

    Tudor is a nicely made watch with an in house movement now as well, if you are a fan of the snowflake hour hand??

    I like the Tudor BBB, but I really like the blue LE best. It's hard to come by...
