it is going to explode. Safe, yes, but may not match color wise.
But it may take a good eye to notice a color difference on some parings.

I think steel hardness comes in a range
From what I understand, untreated steel is much softer, while 316L used in most watches are harder. When measured in Vickers, I see that PT is 125 vs mild steel is 130 vs 316L steel is 155, which is nearly 25% different.
Thanks for everyone’s responses so far
I guess to summarize my concerns: 1) color mismatch (not that worried as the case is brushed and the PT and steel don’t look too different on the Panoretrograph PT case vs the GO Panograph 21mm bracelet 2) steel (if it’s 316 or harder) being harder than p...
from an aesthetic POV
the original Yacht Master with matt pt bezel and oystersteel case and bracelet is somewhat attractive ;-)
