I didn't check every part before I left the shop.
After a couple weeks riding, I decided to wash my bike.
All campy components were fine except the rear caliper which has 2 deep damage marks, around 5mm diameter.
It so deep it goes down to the metal.
LBS says, your rear tires threw stones onto it OR you hit some acid pool.
I had nothing to say.
I emailed Campagnolo Italy and the Hong Kong distributor and got an email back from Taiwan
First at all, thank you for using Campagnolo products.
In the technical point of view from the attached photo, it seems like the rear caliper have been hit by small stones during the cycling, and according to our warranty, this is more belong to human factor causing, not fit to Campagnolo warranty policy. Due to the reason we don't sell the spare parts for replacing the caliper main body, only have to change the whole caliper.
Please request to the shop you original purchased for more help, thank you for your understanding
Thanks & Regards,

The problem I have is, one of the marks is on the 'frontal' side of the caliper, basically the stone would have had to travel at high velocity, smack my frame then bounce onto the caliper and scratch it deep down to the metal.
My frame has zero scratches around that area.
The other theory is acid, I'm actually fine, no burn marks and my bib and jersey are fine.... So I discount hitting a pool of acid haha.
Anyone experience this?
Looking at the pictures now on my large monitor - I tend to agree that it looks potentially like a splash / drip of something corrosive.
