Diving, while wearing a DAVOSA Argonautic Bronze on your wrist, signals to the world that you are a trendsetter and yet part of a centuries-old tradition of seafaring and diving. After all, for centuries bronze has been the material of choice for nautical devices as well as for the first diving bells. Now some watch manufacturers have begun rediscovering this heritage material. Bronze is easy to work with and its unique, yellowish-red sheen gives it a distinct look compared to materials like gold, silver and stainless steel. What is more, the surface reacts to its wearer and prevailing climatic conditions, so the timepiece develops an individual patina in the shortest time. This makes each watch one of a kind in what is already a strictly limited edition.

I ordered this Limited Edition bronze/blue Argonautic from the Davosa-usa website and I'm very happy with my purchase! The watch was shipped (with Tracking) in excellent packaging and arrived promptly. I have to say that the watch looks *even better* in person than it does on the website. The combination of bronze/blue looks terrific, and the leather band is very comfortable. I have a 6 3/4" wrist and this timepiece looks just about perfect on it. So far the watch is keeping excellent time--well within the norms for an automatic watch of this sort. I expect this won't be my only Davosa watch....
After I opened the vacuum bag, the bronze actually respond to the combination of oxygen and temperature with a beautiful coloring effect that so far it feels like a unique metal color I've never seen before!
