    Good spot, I quite fancy a bronze cased watch after seeing the level of patina achieved by the owner of Oris with his Carl Brashear. Itís almost totally turquoise...

    Some serious graft has been put in to achieve that level of patina...

    Yes I saw a video of him doing everything imaginable whilst wearing the watch to get it to that stage. Milk and vinegar etc

    Very beautiful watch, though personally I prefer the bronze raw and unpatinated.

    Hmmm... can be rendered in rose gold, and actually prefer the hands and indices thus...

    There are a number of videos on youtube and various ways of force patinating and de-patinating. It looks so easy, I cannot see why people would bother to wait.

    That turquoise Oris is insane!

    Jocke, you really are a terrible man. I though I'd managed to stop hankering after a Dornbluth and then you post this. Stunning photography as usual.

    Ive just seems that Kibble Watches is selling the same Carl Brashear watch. Iím tempted to purchase and have a go at emulating that level of funky patina.
