Since it was made of a mixture of Tin and Brass, it was a different bronze than my previous model (aluminum and brass). I just had to have it. It has not been about a month with the Tank M26 and a slight patina has already developed.
Here it is in living color:
As you can see, despite its long lug to lug length, it fits my 7 inch wrist very nicely and it is relatively thin for its size. I also like the dome crystal, which does not feature any anti-reflective coating. it makes it look a lot like an old school Plexiglas crystal, without the fuss. Whether or not this was intentional, it looks awesome and lends itself well to the design.
So you take a great design, add a wonderful movement (+1 sec/day), a great strap, an awesome buckle and what do you get? A VERY HAPPY TIME2WATCH!
