I have the new Deauville Mini coming tomorrow. This will be my first bag with the “pre-tanned” vachetta.

Will it still patina over time? Should I still treat it with my vachetta protection products?

Any insight is much appreciated.

I don’t own anything pre-tanned, however, I watched a YouTube video yesterday on the Odeon PM with natural trim, the poster says it does not patina like vachetta. That’s the only reference I’ve seen to this. Hope someone with experience chimes in soon.

I also heard this so I would expect some darkening but don't know how much and how long..
The darkening is nothing compared to regular vachetta. It has gotten about the same amount of darkening as a regular vachetta bag would have gotten in a couple of days.

I've the egg bag that has pre treated handles: when I bought it my SA told me that it was going to tan, and was warned not to expose it to water. Over the time it hasn't changed much in my opinion, even though I don't carry it that frequently.
