    So, regarding Tropical. I see that I do not agree with many of you regarding what tropic is.

    In my opinion, tropical is, as stated in the quote in the thread start, a black dial gone brown without being damaged. To me, damaged dials are just damaged, regardless of colour. A bright dials gone beige/yellow or something like that is just a patinated dial (and can look good, but not tropical).

    This guy writes a bit about tropical and the abuse of the word.

    I think he is a bit too harsh maybe, but I totally agree that it is too abused by dealers and collections to push up values.

    A pic on the only watch I own that I consider tropical.
