I made the realization today this color almost perfectly matches the Apple Safari logo, which as much as I loathe the company, I thought swapping the blue on the compass hand for white will be a good option, as well as also likely to match the inscription and other dial markings. The hands and index designs themselves are still to be determined, remember.
Without the darker navy dial I am unsure if a bronze look is still worth pursuing but I wanted to throw out a few renders (as best as I can draw) of brushed steel, polished steel, bronze, and last a bright rose gold. I skipped gaudy full yellow gold for everyone's sanity.
Let's assume that the bronze would look close to this PVD watch here:
Of course this is all completely aside from bezel options...
