I like how it was naturally aging as he was swimming, boating and living life with it. It lost it's natural beauty when he started playing with lemon juice, raw eggs and vinegar. But hey, It's his watch.

I really don't understand artificially aging a watch. If it were mine, I would just let it patina naturally...

A little LOS to speed up the process and seal the stage of patina you like but this is insane.

Verdigris, it'll ruin a watch. Needs cleaning with vinegar.

if I am not mistake it will start to change the surface of the case so it will start to look pitted.
