Why does stainless steel require special care?
Over time, the polished look of a stainless-steel watch can begin to dull. The slight openings between the links of metal bracelets are also privy to settling dust and dirt, which can lead to wear or even corrosion. Even with water-resistant designs, stainless steel watches can be vulnerable to rust due to frequent swimming, saltwater exposure or even just frequent sweating.
