I was just thinking that if you missed that, maybe it's just the plastic peeling off. Just a thought.

same here. i thought i took all the plastic out, turns out i was still wearing some pieces of it for over a month..

That clearly looks like corrosive reaction. Either your presperation or something that you regularly apply to your hands, like soaps, lotions or perfumes can amplify the natural corrosive nature of human sweat. I have seen pictures (Google it) where stainless steel diving watches had the whole back of the case eaten away by some peoples, natural, reactivity to metals, particularly when dissimilar metals are in contact with each other.

This is huge. Salt water and dissimilar metals can set up some crazy reactions. Do you wear a bracelet, cufflinks, home arrest bracelet?

Chemicals too. Good luck.

I know exactly how you feel. My gold Seiko started losing all of it's plating on the band and to replace it was $75.00. I have the rose gold gear and I'm waiting to see how long the plating lasts on it. The gear always has the correct time and date so I feel like I'm already ahead. Getting it for half price at Best Buy didn't hurt either.
