I joined the Bronzo club!

Thanks to the help of gogator1, I have finally got myself a Bronzo! I was quite nervous of the size, but once on the wrist, it wears great! I have a feeling the normal watch rotation may be put on hold for a while; this thing is just beautiful!

Oh Boy Wade....that is a special one! Big congrats, I love the way it can look like a rose gold watch but have the durability of the bronze.

It's current. I think they make 1500 a year. The model in 968, released in 2019, I believe. I took my wife with me to see it yesterday and it took her Ĺ a second to say, "yes, I like that one a lot".

Thanks everyone! After a couple days of wrist time, I really love this watch. If anyone else is in the same boat I was, worried about the size, don't be. My problem is there isn't a dealer anywhere near me and even if there was, I wouldn't be seeing this model to try on. I was very fortunate to be able to drive a few hours for a face to face deal. If your wrist can pull off a normal 44mm Panerai, you will barely notice a difference with this one.
