Hi Guys,

Does anyone know what specific kind of damage this is? I'm assuming it's the lacquer, maybe due to humidity, but wondering if anyone has any additional insight.

The dial looks absolutely flawless from many angles, mildly patinated from others, and then under direct overhead lighting, like the image on the left (though the photo makes it look slightly worse than it is).

Is this normal? When I see photos of watches with patina online, do they also have "bad angles" that bring damage like this to worst light?

Thanks!

I have owned a few watches like this that have evenly distributed pitting mainly visible when light comes from a certain angle. These can actually be acceptable to the naked eye in many cases.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, to the naked eye, it can actually look sort of charming, as long as you are into that kind of thing. My concern is that it will continue to get worse and worse over time. So "pitting" - that's what this is?
