In Case You Missed It - the BR V2-94 AERONAVALE in BRONZE

By and large, when it comes to bronze watches I have mixed emotions. All too often brands foolishly opt to use it for a dive watch, the execution is clumsy, and within a few months it is a large block of greenish smudge that looks as if it has been polished with a hot Hershey bar.

But bronze can be elegant, and my favorite in a runaway is the BR V2-94 Aeronvale in bronze.
A less bulky profile than a diver, it provides a far better format for bronze.  To be clear, the BR V2-94 will age and gain a patina that will share not just the story of the watch, but the individual who wore it. And this is just the time machine to record that history.

Here are the pertinents -
