    Thank you - I have to say I am really pleased with it. I took @mrk's advice (always a good thing to do!) and asked for a blue tropic strap rather than the standard black - which really compliments the overall colour scheme.

    Just saw that.

    They got a couple bits wrong though, the movements are all Sellita now, and the patina won't change over time much at all on Stowa bronze cases. Nevertheless, awesome to see it in the list :cool:

    Edit*

    Going by Stowa's claims of course as they apply a treatment to it to stop any type of green patina and corrosion forming. The surface may texture a little more depending on what kind of liquid it is exposed to from what they said to me directly,a and this holds true as I have washed mine multiple times (Covid hygiene and all that) and the surface has nicely gained a few more additional texture bits: At first glance you won't notice any difference to 2 months ago though.

    New SRPE51K1, not so keen on the bracelet but loving it on a strap. The lume is fierce and makes the indices a sort of grey-green when charged.

    I was such a vocal critic of Christopher Ward in their earlier days, but they are moving forward in leaps and bounds and their current offerings are so good that there are not many if any brands that can touch them for value for money.

    I like quite a few of their offerings. The normal divers are nice. Quite like the look of that sport watch too (c63 sealander elite) with the concealable crown, I’ve never seen that before. I thought it was quite cool !

    They really did mess up with their awful dial logo being so distracting and massive. Why could they just not keep the old one? Other than that some of the models are very very nice and with these regular DFS style sales, are very good value too. Just that dial logo really lets all of them down.

    I don't own a bronze watch and think I'm going to pick one up from CW.
