    I agree--the bronze is the star. This bronze is a nice, rich, almost rose gold color.

    Guys....full disclosure......

    I got so excited about this one out of the box, and it was relatively inexpensive, so I didn't bother timing it before I tried it one or posted this thread.

    Unfortunately, it turns out that the watch was running 5 minutes fast per hour (not per day, per hour). And the power reserve was only about 20 hours.

    So, I sent it back.

    I'm probably going to get another one. The seller doesn't do exchanges, so I am going to wait to make sure I get refunded before buying another one.

    Sorry for the bad news. Thank God it wasn't a more expensive watch.

    I definitely like the watch and want to get another one. Discount Watch Store is a big operation, I'm sure there won't be any problems. They've been great about it so far.

    Probably this is just a fluke. Maybe damaged in shipping or magnetized or something. Who knows?

    Sounds like it's magnetized. Still, get another one as all will be good. Can't believe a bronze watch for $110, even Invicta... got to be the lowest bronze watch price yet.
