    Bathyscape 100 Bronze and green skin: please advise...

    First, Hi from Rio de Janeiro. I'm new to the forum and would like to share my recently acquired BS 100 Bronze (067/100). Although it's a beautiful piece, Rio's humidity is already taking its toll upon the watch case and my wrist is getting green... Is this normal? Thanks for any hints!

    I've heard of people giving up on bronze watches because of this. Not sure it's quite normal, but it's also not unheard of.

    Does it have a bronze case back as well? A lot of bronze watches have stainless steal case backs I think for this reason to stop the green oxidation on the wrist it is quite normal and is a natural part of the bronze reaction with the environment

    does the green wrist bother you is it really noticeable? Maybe you could source a stainless steel back from aquadive if it becomes a problem?

    Yes, the case back is no bronze. The green wrist doesn`t bother me that much, but I`m afraid it could make a wrong impression in a professional environment... Thanks for the hint!

    Thanks for all hints and clarifications.

    I`m trying the same anti-oxidizing solution as for my khoukri knives (high level of carbon steel): baby oil on the case back and on the wrist. I`ll tell you how it goes.

    Thanks!

    Just a thought but you might try clear nail polish on the areas that are on your skin.....

    This stuff also works, apply it to the caseback.
