Patek Philippe: At least it is still under warranty...

A guy on the rolexforums reported similar issues in 2019 or 2020. His 5711 developed recurring brown spots like rust on both sides of the bracelet exactly where the pins are covered up with metal on the non-removable links.

Patek Philippe: The point is that what you consider an improvement would make it look worse for others. No universal truth here.
