Thanks, Jeff! I think this would be good on a bronze watch with lots of patina.

Exactly, Scott! I was thinking the same thing. Somehow all that aged marbling and texture would blend well with a quick-aging bronze case. To top it off, a good sized bronze buckle (maybe even just a sparta) would be the icing on the cake. Who knows, with bronze hitting the watch world maybe some makers would start their foundries for some supply. I know Johnny P is seriously making some.

Question, Scott....would a medium gray, distresed strap go with a bronze case? My hunch says it could, after all gray is the color of slate and I've seen exposed cliff faces showing a kaleidoscope of gray and bronze tones.

Bronze would look perfect on this strap. I think it would really showcase the bronze and also bring out the strap...great compliments to each other especially as the bronze develops a patina! drool.gif
