Default What color is Rota's 'bronze'

I got my torques in from WheelDude last Friday (they went directly to the shop that had my car), but when I picked up my car this afternoon I was a bit puzzled.

The guy at wheel dude said that there were two colors of bronze, and described them to me as "the bronze is more metalic, and the royal sports bronze looks brown". Now that I see the wheels, I can't really tell if they look bronze or not. They look pretty much grey-ish/gun metal to me. I'll try taking some pictures in the sun tomorrow.

Am I just crazy, or could I have gotten the wrong color wheels?

I think this pic is a pretty accurate representation of Rota Bronze. Its not as brassy as some others:


Sports Bronze is pretty much brown or dull copperish:

Ok, this is pretty much what they look like.

Other than that, I'm still undecided. I went from a 7 spoke, to the split spoke. I was expecting the bronze to be more in the middle of the two, so I'm kinda disappointed about that. Oh well, I can fix that in a few months with power coat or spray paint.
