That's fucking beautiful, foggy.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

That's cool! It's like watching a long term science experiment unfold before our eyes.

I can see a subtle difference. Is that navel grade bronze?

Don't like it new, but do like it now. If that's not extra dent-prone, would def try one.

Softer than steel and a tad harder than gold.

Cousin 6 and it's brother, cousin 8 , are types of bronze alloy that patina more dramatically than the more foo foo aluminum bronze alloy that is slower to patina and less dramatic when it do. Steinhart uses aluminum bronze as does Tooter. At least until Rolex invents CuSn904 bronze.




Aluminum bronze before and a few months after. Just a bit darker. Big difference in the strap though. Near impossible to exactly duplicate the original lighting, but it is darker now than when it was new.

Aging nicely. Probably need to clean it up. I recommend steel wool for a lovely brushed appearance. ;)
