Evant Tropic Black Fume Dial Bronze arrived

Post by ericf4 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:30 am

Got here in 2 days from Singapore which is pretty amazing. Packaging was pretty nice wood box albeit shipped in a DHL bag versus an outer box. It was well bubble wrapped but I was surprised it wasn't shipped in an outer cardboard box.

It came on this nice fabric strap that I normally wouldn't wear but man I like this strap. It also came with a distressed brown leather and a black leather strap. Both Italian made as I recall but they are pretty stiff and will need a break in time for sure. I wish they would have shipped the extra straps with buckles though but that's a nit pick.

It's a great size in diameter especially for my small wrists yet still has decent thickness. It is comfortable on the wrist. Here's a few quick pics on the canvas as I'll try leather later and take more pics. The dial is stunning in person as is the black date wheel and bezel.

Very nice! It works well with small wrists. My green dial will arrive later today at my office in FL. I am in Scottsdale attending a seminar and will see it when I get back Saturday. Congrats!!
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

On black Leather that came with it...Definitely will take some break in of the leather. I presume the same for the brown that came with it.

That’s really cool. A nice way to scratch the bronze itch, with plenty of class, without going overboard to do it. i’m thinking this is the best Evant of the bunch, so far.

Totally agree, its classy looking, made of high quality materials and a solid swiss movement, and scratch the bronze itch. I still have another Bronze watch inbound i preordered months ago that i forgot about...Zelos Helmsmen 2 with ceramic bezel. So i guess i will have 2 bronze soon.

I put the brown one on, try flexing the strap a dozen times before installing to loosen it up. Looks great.

My bronze bezel markers did not align properly with dial markers. It was 1/2 click left and right of dial's 12 o' clock hour marker. My blue fume dial bezel is right on the money! Anders was cool enough to have it returned for a refund since there are no more green dials available. Now this amber dial is offered!! Tempting.
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.
