I havent worn this for 30 days yet...I assumed this clasp was stainless steel. However the plating on this monkey metal crap is comming off. Because of the way it sits on my wrist.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see any plating coming off in your pictures...

Actually I like a somewhat worn looking petina, but haven't seen anything like brass, just a few scratches.

Anal yes I guess. But its more of the principal I guess.

I wear it everyday yes. Which is only since Christmas day. I work in a office nothing labor intensive...I understand it will have scratches and so on. But this being non stainless means this will continue until the whole thing looks like crap. I mean this is the same sht you get in a 10.00 drugstore watch.

I wonder if there were different clasps made with different materials. I have a few deep scratches on my clasp, and nothing showing through but more SS (maybe not true SS, but it's not plated). I'm around salt water a lot (scuba diver), and this been chrome plated brass (or some other metal?), I would have seen some oxidation.

Forgive me for asking what may seem like a silly question, but did you remove the protective plastic from the clasp when you unboxed it? I only ask because I remember not even being able to tell if there was a protective covering on mine until I really tried to peel it off. I was just thinking that if you missed that, maybe it's just the plastic peeling off. Just a thought.
