Totally agree. This is my second bronze. I was still in the honeymoon phase with the other when these were released.
I initially was turned off by the dial design (I really wanted a Cali dial...or so I thought) till I saw how faithful this was to the original vintage from '63. It grew on me very quickly. Additionally I was unsure about the teal dial color, the narrow lug width and the box crystal on such a small dial but in person the watch totally blows me away. Great time keeper too. ~+1/day. Got lucky no doubt.
