Is stainless steel a good watch material?
Watchmakers appreciate stainless steel for its many positive qualities. As an alloy made from iron and chromium, stainless steel is corrosion-resistant. It also offers good tensile strength and impact resistance. These are all qualities that go into making a high-quality timepiece. One thing to note about stainless steel though: it can be uncomfortable as a strap material.
Do stainless-steel watches tarnish?
One of the advantages of stainless steel over sterling is its tarnish resistance. This is not to say that stainless steel never tarnishes, it can. But because of the way it is manufactured and finished, tarnishing is rare. Take care of your watch and keep it clean and there should be no worries of tarnishing. If it does tarnish, a bit of jewellery polish will clean it up nicely.
Are stainless-steel watches always waterproof?
Stainless steel itself is a waterproof material. This does not necessarily mean that all-stainless-steel watches are waterproof. Waterproofing is a matter of how a watch case is constructed and sealed. Thus, it is always important to check the specifications of a particular watch to know its level of water resistance. A stainless-steel watch that is waterproof is a very good watch.
