Yellow Patina - Let's see what you have!!!!

Let's see some of your vintage gentlemen - those special watches rarely seen or seldom worn that are kept in vaults and safes, rarely out in daylight where the dials have gone "mellow yellow."

If you have that yellow patina working on your dial, break it out, take some pics and let's see 'em. Also, it would be nice if you would provide some details or history on the watch for all the curious members here who frequent the vintage section of TRF.

I'll start off with this seldom posted 1985 GMT 1650 which I have owned for over a decade now. It is an original example, and rarely makes it out of the vault. It was a one owner watch before I purchased it and is a very complete set. Definitely one of my favorite GMTs.
