Strange patina

Post by Bahnstormer_vRS »

There's some strange patina on this Christmas present to me from my girlfriend/partner.

I'm having trouble working out which brand and model it is. Any ideas folks?

I don't think it is but the bezel possibly had a bit of Breitling Colt about it.

Is it an early model marathon (before they changed their name to snickers)?

Looks like an early Christopher Wonka, before the logo change.

Looks like a real vintage piece. Surely it’s not made from cheddar!? 😂

Was it an early “antichoc” mechanism, perhaps?

No snickers at the back and back on topic. Not wanting to be unKinder but I don't think this is Swiss, Guylian. It'll nestlé in with the rest of your collection just fine. Don't think it's patina, maybe a little Lindt. Right up my quality street.

Well, although the post was sent from your Galaxy, I think it's really more plain. Certainly not a summer watch.
