No thanks, I'm just happy with my new to me Tudor Black Bay Bronze. It came like new so there's not much patina yet but it's really beautiful, a little large for my current tastes but the cool bronze case deserves the air space. Comes with the new in house movement on a really well done distressed strap. I love the color interplay of bezel and case and snowflake hands. I'm going to try and hang on to this to cover the Tu-dex section of the wartch box. Seller's pic.

Nice, if I ever get the bronze bug that would be the one to do it. Congratulations.

While bronze watches mostly do nothing for me, I must say, that the design of the bronze Black Bay really is something else. Love the dial on it, and the bezel insert - the colour scheme reminds me of the two-tone and gold GMT-Master "Root Beer."

What I don't like is the size - the standard 41mm BB is already 50mm lug to lug, so a 43mm more than likely has a considerably larger lug to lug distance. However, that's just me being grumpy (i.e. just Mr. Bloke being Mr. Bloke).

That said...
