ChristopherWilliam, it might be a little uneven but it looks good. As they say, it is a living metal and the patina will continue to evolve. I am curious to see how it looks after a few more months of wear. I do dig that watch.
oh yeah mine is definitely uneven!! mine looks more "antiqued" and rusty each day. personally i love it this way because it looks a little more vintage. that being said, i really do love the way folks are doing the LOS treatments and getting that blackish tone....

actually, i like very version of these watches...i really don't think you can mess it up with any method, and i like how most are turn!

Yep, liver of sulphur gel dissolved in warm water then dipping the watch head. Rubbed back with a touch of Cape Cod cloth to bring up a little of the shine underneath.

Thx for the tip!!
I did mine already in Kazimon1500b v2, I did a 2 tone, since the bezel is copper.... its pretty fun.... I will try Cape cod later on to see if it brings shine to mine!!

Thx again!!
Tony

This stuff makes me jealous. I love bronze patina. I wish the Hamilton Belowzero 1000 had a bronze option. Would look amazing with patina with its diving helmet inspired design.
I'm going to have to render it with photoshop and see.

Used diluted (50/50) "Brass Darkening Solution" based on Selenious Acid. Dipped in baking soda solution when colour reached desired state. The effect occurred on a curve, with most of the colour appearing in the last 20% of the time in the bath.
Nice look! What did you dilute the solution with? Water?

Thank you. Yes, just plain tap water. Accidentally really, as I only had half as much solution as I needed to cover the watch in a bowl. Worried at first as there was no effect for the first 50% of its bath, but then things took off.

I've been watching, wishing, hoping, realizing, buying and waiting to get into this thread.

Now, here is my offering...

You made it in! Nicely done. Love LoS, smells, but rocks. I went with the gel.
