ECBNo expert...but perhaps it's got stainless steel threaded screw bar inserts within the bronze case?...bronze threads would wear out with stainless screw bars and lots of strap swaps...just a thought?
+1. a "threaded steel sleeve" sounds very plausible; bronze threads could be problematic over time...
There was a time when "buying bronze" didn't necessarily mean you were getting bronze. Many popular "micros" at the time got "caught up" in that embarrassing issue. Benarus being one of them. Steve handled it like a champ though... Looking forward to hearing what the "official" issue is.
