Great watches all, though I find it difficult to find a tropical dial watch myself that is to my liking. It is even harder than finding regular vintage watches!

Wow! What a collection of old ... ehrm aged watches with patina. But seriously, I do like them a lot. Still, I think they could be money pits?

Now, I have a difficult question.. patina on a Grand Seiko? Anyone? Or is that watch just too gorgeous to look good with patina?

Yep, a perfectly aged dial. It is all part of the wabi\-sabi of the watch you know.

I think the rice paper dial is actually more of a snowdrift? The grain is all in one direction, rice paper grain is not if I remember correctly.
