metals used for watchbands vary from stainless steel, silver, gold and
others. All of these metals have a high resistance to rust. Among these
metals, stainless steel is used much more in quantity than other metals

look. However, these fine properties of stainless steel are not
effective unless it is used correctly.
"stainless" property of stainless steel is due to an oxide layer,
chromium oxide or something similar covering the surface of the
stainless steel. This oxide layer is liable to cause rust if the amount
