Any tips, hints, or tricks to protecting anodized steel? Just bought a Citizen Skyhawk like the one pictured below, and would like to keep the coating as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Previously had a Nighthawk with, I assume, the same coating, including on the clasp, and it wore off the clasp after like 2 openings. Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, it was broke out of the box, so I returned it. Had I done my due diligence prior to purchase, I probably would not have bought the Skyhawk,at least not with the black bracelet.
The thing that really sucks, is that it was delivered to my folks house in the states, and by the time I get there to get it, the return period will long be expired.
The pics are from a watch currently up for sale on here, so I hope Im not breaking any rules.
