I like it, footy! A big'un. Bit of a departure for sure, but it looks nice. Well done.

There are a handful of people on this forum who have them, and I think the split is pretty even in terms of keepers and not. The brass alloy has a touch of lead in it, which is a reason why some people are returning theirs. Me, I would have been okay with keeping mine, but as Magrette is offering, I'll happily take a credit and get something else. Magrette also gave the option of keeping it and getting a 15% discount on your next purchase, which seems like an alright deal in itself.
I took the 15% discount and got this.

I have three Magrettes and I love them all. Dion ( the Magrette owner ) has taken good care of me. :thumbup:

Not sure how many manuafcturers are doing it though apart from panarai (bronze ones are a bit expensive) and anonimo (bit ugly). Was starting to think a well designed, reasonably priced, bronze watch was asking too much?
I'll be receiving a reasonably priced bronze watch soon. I'll be sure to post pictures and a description.

The Magrette "bronze" has become somewhat of a collectors item. It's a fine watch no matter the case material.

Most small brands that got caught up with the Bronze statement bought cases made of brass initially, I had a Zenton Bronze that was made of brass, when the option became available I sent it back for a new bronze case. The brass never patinared properly and id rather have the more expensive case material that I payed for.

I love the way its aging now but looking back at the brass version in pictures I sometimes miss the extremely shiney case but you can't have it both ways.
I miss all the great things that may never be.
