Re: I like the brass case.

Personally, I have never understood the attraction of a brass / bronze watch case. Confused

In my POV, in that application, it's simply another Base Metal. Whistle

But hey, to each their own and a'! Thumbs Up

Cheers!

Thanks! I wore it all day today and noticed a few things....

It sits on my wrist as nicely as my MKII (and weighs about the same).

The Horween strap feels divine, it's my first and I now understand why people like 'em.

The "deep" dial looks really nice up close (the hour markers are actually cut outs and show the "under" dial). I wasn't sure about this design feature, but am sold on it now.

The unidirectional bezel is tight, but not too tight. Again referencing the MKII - it is almost as sweet. I like it a lot.

I like the brass case. I've had gold watches before and have never bonded completely with them. Brass, at least as it has been done here, seems to suit me well.

Color, patina, etc.... BobbyMikeRedux 137 April 12, 2017 05:32PM
The patina is my main objection, of course Caveman 159 April 12, 2017 05:43PM
