Tudor BB 58 925 - silver seems to tarnish in the typical way

Sep 23, 2021,11:54 AM

A picture I took yesterday. This watch has been sitting at the dealer for at least 3 months. In a window with direct sun, humidity and warmth of the canarian islands.

Seems to me as it does not fulfill the announcements of Tudor....

Noticed the same thing at a local AD. Humidity sometimes hits 80%.

Thanks sharing this, I recently went and tried this watch and liked it so much with its great colour and size, that I put myself on the list for this (waiting lists for Tudor maybe being a side topic 🤔). However, given I discussed the patina aspect but wa...
