Default Arrived today: HEROIC18 MS7200 CuSn8 Bronze Watch Limited Edition

Hello all!

Been hunting for a very specific type of bronze watch over the past few years.

Bronze 45mm or more
Swiss movement
Sandwich dial in green
Less than $2000 USD

Last year I finally found a Nethuns which meet these criteria. (I am a very patient man). You can see it here: https://www.watchfreeks.com/28-just-ordered-arrived-today/206874-arrived-nethuns-n-5-1-1-7-02-bronze-unboxing-pic-heavy.html

I just found that Heroic18 is doing Swiss movements so am going to try one. The big differences I can see are

45mm vs 47mm
manual vs auto
ti back vs steel showcase
small second vs none

Heroic18s have been reviewed a few times here so I am looking forward to it.

Just arrived from Serious Watches!























This thing is awesome! It's big, but I think the size is great (46.5mm) for my 7.5" wrist. The question is, do I keep my Nethuns?





Heroic18 has a larger case diameter, but Nethuns has a larger face.

With regards to SeriousWatches, they were great. Mark was in constant communication with me. Even asked if it were ok to polish the watch or not, considering it's bronze. Fast shipping and a great price. I feel like I could go back to them without hesitation.
