    Some patina grow naturally on watch. i've sen on rolex forum they were discussing about "accelerating" the patina grow on rolex dial

    Does anyone here ever tried the same thing ? or have any tips to make their tag heuer watch have patina ?(preferably on the dial)

    If you have some photo of your beloved Tag Heuer with patina please share it here. I really want to see.

    Thanks

    Big in the world of replica watches.
    Complete nonsense in the world of real watches.

    Well, I think spilling some coffee on the dial would do the trick but why do that? :D

    Real patina is earned, not brought or replicated

    I hate this stuff, people who "bake" or chemical fade dials and bezels are not far removed from counterfeiters in my view.

    100% agree, I've had an Oris which I bought new over 10 years ago now and it is now showing some nice signs of fading on the hands.
