Better response on post Seiko Elnix 0703-7070 with light brown sunburst patinaI have got this Elnix 0703-7070 recently acquired, I just love the patina on the dial! It is what decided me to buy the watch, because the original pristine silver sunburst dial did not do it for me (last picture).

                           

The way it is supposed to look...

Wow, just wow! I love that patina, what a find! Congrats, and that with a nice historical watch too that was made just a few years... can't do better than that.

Fully agreed. patina makes you look again and again, searching for the "Je n'ai sais quoi" of the dial. I am not much into spotted dials or smudges, so this is perfect. Still one may never know what patina may tick all the boxes of the watch collector.

I can see where you got the forum icon admin, I find it interesting that even at such small dimensions it attracts your attention in a big way. Great forum idea!

That really puts the finger on the spot - I couldn't agree more.

Good forum idea this, I added my own dial patina example (the 0853-8030).

Yes, that one is very subtle.. it can only improve with age right? If you hold on it for that long.

How interesting, this Elnix. A lot of them are like jewels, filled with glitzy markers, a glittering duo tone dial and faceted glass. That is not for me, sea-green, ocean- blue etc.

Reading this I realize that this is actually an example of a tropical dial...

I liked the &^% out of that post admin. Great watch - why don't you sell it to me? I will pay anything! (As long as it is reasonable..)

I just love the totally recessed crown. Seiko must have thought that this watch did not need much resetting...

I must say I also prefer that dial with the patina. I am curious as to how your own pictures will turn out..

Generally I think that Seiko dials age beautifully, this cannot be said for any other brands - JLC, Tudor, IWC, Omega to just name a few...

Awesome case design too, and the way the crown is recessed is very smart (and safe).
