Baltic Aquascaphe Bronze: three years of patina and adventure
If a watch had an odometer, this one would have the highest mileage out of my collection.
As we come to father's day 2023, it marks two things for me. First, it's been three years after Covid-19 derailed anything we saw as "normal." Second, it's been three years of wearing a bronze watch and watching it patina; the Baltic Aquascaphe Bronze.
It started with a father’s day
Given to me as a fathers day gift in 2020 from my wife, I had no way to realize what this watch would become for me. The myriad of wristchecks on several different podcasts and social media posts highlight that if this watch had an odometer, the mileage would be quite high. From summiting Mt. Saint Helens with me in 2020, to diving in the Salish Sea and the Gulf of Mexico its natural patina carries more stories and adventures than I could count from those three years. In that time, it helped me craft what has become the Latin motto for the Analog Explorer: Fac Tempus ad Explorandum or "Make the Time to Explore."
