So I pulled the trigger on a green dial full bronze big crown. The watch is gorgeous. Patina intact from the previous owner, will clean it up at some point later but I want to see how it ages first. No discoloration on my wrist that I’ve noticed, yet.
The bracelet is really fantastic, makes the watch I think. I like to wear my bracelets loose and like vintage jangly ones; this one definitely isn’t jangly but it drapes very well, has a significant taper, and the clasp is nicely milled. The whole watch really disappears on the wrist.
Readability is interesting - I think it’s not so great, actually. Part of it is that the eye gets drawn to the case/bracelet more than the dial. But that’s why I got the watch. Part of it is that the contrast between the gold and light green lined hands and the dial isn’t great. But, I handled the oxblood dial version and it had the same issue, and even though it would offer better contrast, I didn’t want the blue dial. So, it’s fine, just a quirk of the watch.
Overall, loving it. It really is kind of a GADA watch - 50m WR with a screw down crown is a decent. But I would have to get over not babying it especially as bronze would be softer than steel. Not sure how scratches would show up on it. Maybe it wouldn’t be as apparent as on a steel watch.
