    There are signficant reasons ship propellors are made from expensive bronze rather than brass having to do with corrosion in sea water.

    Brass is a copper/zinc alloy, bronze is copper/tin alloy. Zinc is the least noble metal and it corrodes to crud quickly in seawater, cracking and corroding brass.

    Don't recommend wearing a brass watch in saltwater:

    Which is the better

    Brass fittings exposed to saltwater corrode to a green patina as the zinc disappears.



    Be sure your dive watch is bronze, not brass.

    Redid the patina on my B30 with a method Lumtec tried and I must say the results please me a lot.

    That looks super! Would you happen to have a wrist shot? I'm very keen on the bronze B series. Probably would go black dial though. Had the original B1 in PVD at the start. They've come a long way.

    Thank you
