It's too bad the superluminova compound (used to make the hands, 5 minute markers and 3-6-9 numerals on the dial glow in the dark) has yet to have exhibited any development of patina over time. Tritium can't be used any longer on dials, but would oftentimes develop lovely patina with the right alchemy of light/humidity/environment as the material exceeded its half life and started to break down.

Congrats! The BB Bronze is a lovely piece. Tudor/Rolex was smart to incorporate a lot of design features that harken back to beloved vintage sports models.
