Many "patina" are achieved by sun bathing, magnifying class sun bathing, oven baking.

The yellowish / brownish fake patina are  difficult to tell.

Patina is something that is very personal. The right kind of person has to like it to pay a premium for it.
Your ONLY job in this world is to make sure that you are happy

You're so right bro. After collecting modern Rolex watches, now I'm hunting for a t25 dial rolex. It likes another level of collection.
