    bronze tone stainless steel bracelet on a bronze watch?

    currently wearing a tudor black bay bronze (the one with the slate grey dial) and was wondering why nobody every tried pairing it up with a bracelet with a bronze tone instead of just straps. Is it possible?

    I do not think I have seen a true bronze bracelet that would look proper on that watch. I have seen a bronze colored shark mesh, not real bronze, but that would look horrible IMHO. After the patina set in it would look awful. good luck

    A real bronze metal bracelet worn against skin? Not the best idea...

    Oris offers a two tone bronze 65 bracelet. As expected, you're going to have a bit of Hulk wrist.

    Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. So I don't think it's a good idea. Owner of the new Oris bico has made comments on this issue, and though the color washes off easily with soup, I still don't think it's a very good idea.

    I own the same Tudor and love it

    I too have wondered why a steel/aluminium anodised bracelet is not offered in copper tone -
    but I guess it will always be a different tone to the ever changing patina of the bronze watch and thus always look slightly mismatched
