Hi,
Brown dials ? I have two with brown dials:

Riki Watanabe



And a gorgeous Orient Star that hacks and hand winds, but unfortunately my poor photography doesn't convey the true beauty and elegance of this watch:



Cheers,
Andrew

Frustration is trying to find your glasses, without your glasses hahaha! I usually use the squint method myself looking for my glasses in the morning :))

Thian,
That's a very elegant bell-matic. First time I have seen this combination of colors (I mean, the watch, not the bird). ;)

Cheers,
Andrew

^-^ Bob,
That's a special SQ, very nice! Almost like a diver, does it have the crown at 3 or at 4 o'clock? Does the crown screw down?
Cheers,
Andrew

^-^ Andrew,


Yes screw down crown, and at 4 o'clock, obtained from ebay as a non runner, I did not know the dial was brown, it looked black on the sellers photo, all it required was a new battery, and to replace the missing case back gasket, nice to see a good looking watch working again. Bob.

Here's an digital Auto (believe me, the dial is brown):


A Bulova hummer:


...and maybe this Seiko dial also qualifies as a brown face (at least towards the bezel):


Cheers,

Axel

Well, this particular one I do not find blingy, just beautiful, and the combination of gold and sienna brown plus the leather strap makes it just right imho. So you are getting younger, like me? ;)
