    Big Crown Pointer in Bronze, Patina

    Hi,

    I am curious to see how the patina develops over time on the Big Crown Pointer in Bronze. Please share your observations.

    Thanks

    I donít believe in forcing patina on bronze and to be honest with you Iím still on the fence with regard whether I like patina or not. Here is a photo of my most patinated watch - itís not an Oris but hopefully it will give you an idea of how it starts to ĒdullĒ from the initial gold colour

    I live in a tropical climate but quite far from the sea. I really like the way the patina has darkened over time - for me it developed fairly evenly but with a few splotches here and there. YMMV.

    Excuse the shaky pics - I am in a moving vehicle.
