A recent incoming, 7548 with a nicely aged bezel insert, which has started to change colour to an inky blue:




Got me thinking about the effects of time of watches.

Had a nicely aged Tuna where the lume had started to change:



A 6105 where time had taken the shine off the applied Seiko logo:


Anyone else share theirs?

The 6309 above is one that I have held on to, but a while back I was really keen on finding Heavy Wabi examples - I'm sure John will remember this one!

Mmmm, some real wabi sabi, lots of lovely aged 6309s mixed in there.

Years ago picked up an aged 6309, bleached/baked insert & vintage re-lume, first thing to get me into imperfect watches, no substitute for genuine aging though:

My Daini 6217 has some of the most beautiful imperfection I've seen:




Image from Spencer:


My 6215 appears bezel appears purple in the right light, but this is more plain ol' patina than wabi-sabi:
