Patina is a result of the natural ageing and use process of the finish on a watch or dial (or anything old). The slight discoloration or fading of a dial as compared to a like new condition...the accumulation of oxidation spots or scratches on the overall piece is often referred to as character. many collectors prefer the natural patina of an old watch as opposed to a refinished dial.

Learn somthing new every day. Thanks. So, I can refer to my age spots as "Patina". Of course, I realize there's a hundred other things that change or go wrong due to Patina. I dont' think I like Patina! :problem:
