Hey all.

I'm on the fence about keeping this one. It's been long sold out and this was the hardest to find model and color dial. I bought it new old stock and it's a really well thought out watch with strong Panerai influences. I have another bronze up for sale and chances are that I'll keep one or the other so don't hesitate too long on this one.

Ariel Soltura (our very own) did a very thorough video review on youtube (and watch report) so be sure to check it out. My take is this - it's a larger watch (I have a 7 inch wrist) but wears really nicely due to the shape of the case and lugs. Super simple classy design. If I didn't love the stock strap, I'd love to have been changing it out for others. It's a strap monster! Ariel had his on the other textured green/brown strap. Both are awesome. GG definitely knows their straps. I had this one with me in Mexico and never had it in the ocean (had it on leather) but it did start to get a light patina that knocked the shininess (shiny-ness) off of it. The bronze is a different formulation than my deep blue, so it "takes" patina at a different rate and/or it may for a different color. Of course
