Patina (Week 9)

It is interesting to see the development of the patina on the watch after just a few days back home. Looks like the temperature, humidity and overall environment have an impact on the watch. 

The difference in average temperature is about 10 degrees (Celsius) and it is more humid. Also, I believe the overall temperature difference during the day (sunny in the day and heavy rain in the evening) have an impact on the watch.

Overall the case is now darker. The darkening of the case was more noticeable in the past 3 days.

The 'reddish' patina is all but gone, I believe due to the darkening of the case.

More spots, also darker spots.

The dark spot at the bottom of the case getting bigger and bigger. The growth was accelerated by the local environment.

I like the direction the patina is developing. 

Again the case. Darker and darker. I believe the increase in usage also help in making the case darker and darker.

I will be home for about a week. I can't wait to see how the patina will develop over the week.
