Tropic Diver Bronze Green
The hugely popular Tropic Diver case is now offered for the first time in bronze. Not just any regular bronze, but marine grade bronze, CuSn8. CuSn8 is commonly regarded as the industry standard, this means it can be used below the surface in salt water for a lifetime, with virtually no signs of corrosion. Also the main reason for its long history of nautical applications. CuSn8 bronze is the most expensive bronze material due to the high copper content of 92 percent. Unlike other watch manufacturer that uses aluminum bronze, CuSn8 bronze gives the watch the warm almost rose gold bronze color. The bronze case is sandblasted to give it a smooth matte look. If you’re wondering why it looks like rose gold, don't worry because that’s totally normal for fresh bronze. The case won’t show any signs of patina until it’s been worn outside for a bit.
One of the highlights of this new model is probably the iconic dial design which is now synonymous with Evant. The Tropic Diver Bronze Green sports a dark, military green dial. The dial is finely sandblasted to give it a matte textured finish and then coated with a special paint to give it a low light appaerance. Combine this matching matte applied gilt indexes and you have what is probably the most unique green dial. It is one of those dials you have to see it in person to appreciate the amount of details that has gone into what is seemingly a small area.
Unlike the Tropic Diver Fume Black, the Tropic Diver Bronze Green has a full bronze bezel made from the same marine grade bronze. The bronze bezel is engraved and then filled with maximum SuperLuminova. The create dimension, the bronze bezel is fabricated from a solid block of bronze and made domed like its ceramic counterpart. This is especially tedious and expensive process. The 120 click uni-direction rotating bezel features half knurling to accommodate the bigger dial opening and not sacrificing on the excellent grip achieved by a combination of fine machining. The new Tropic Diver Bronze's bezel has also been improved with a tighter bezel action.
