I think it's more based on reiatsu. The more reiatsu you have he slower you age. That time scale idea used ot be feasible but with the revelations this arc it's kind of obvious that it doesn't work.
Anotherr clear example is Rukia and Ganju. When Rukia bought Kaien's body to the Shibas she didn't look any diffferent to her pre-time skip self. However Ganju was only a child back then. Next we see him around Rukia's age and Rukia hardly aged at all.
But what about the years that passed from the missing captain forget the squad number till it was filled, and who was around at the time of said captain (of which i think is isshin)
I want to elaborate on that for a second, We have Isshin in the recent chapter being saved by Masuki i'll say 1-3years before ichigo's birth give or take then we have ichigo at present being 17 years old that is 20 years in the human world, this would give the time period between Aizen's plan of 'using Ichigo' around the same time yet he was already hatching a 'master plan' some 110 years (SS time) prior, if that is the case then Isshin would of been a captain around that same time period of Aizen using Shinji Hirako & co. Which wouldn't make sense to me but i could be looking to much in to it.

I think there is a difference between the rate at which time flows- 1:1 human and SS
and the Age of people in SS vs human world.
Rukia is over 100 years old- but has Aged only what into her teens.
so there is a difference. --
I don't know how it all works really but just to confuse you some more...Bach is like over 1000 years old and as far as we can tell he is a Quincy.
But to answer the question, I think time flows in SS the same as anywhere else. There hasn't really been any evidence to the contrary. Even now, Isshin said Ichigo's been gone for 3 days, which seems about right for the amount of time he spent in HM/SS/Royal Realm. Although the different time flow would explain why SS has been like Feudal Japan for millennia, but tbh I think that's just 'the magic' of the place.
ya, time flow is the same. It's never been said that there is a time difference between worlds. The only difference is the time it takes for the people to age. Nothing to do with the actual worlds.
Right lets get this straight, TBTP Arc was 110years prior to the start of the manga? the recent manga shows Aizen, Gin and Tousen in Captain clothes which back in TBTP they were lieutenants, also it shows isshin as a captain so im assuming this is ruffly 10 years after the TBTP incident, this still leaves 100years between then and the start of the manga, If it unravels that isshin is atm about to meet masaki then that still does not explain the missing time between events.
To be fair though i do see why people are saying its a 1:1 ratio, what with inoue training with rukia in ss (but then again even if time was obscure, shes a soul she wouldn't age(thinking about that more her chad and Uryuu don't leave their bodys)) *oh no ive gone boss-eyed*

Well, comparing TBTP Gin and Matsumoto to the ones we saw in the last chapter, I'd say there is a significant time gap between. 10 years is a bit too little, in my opinion. I'd guess it's around 20-30 years at least.
but there is still a 70-80 year gap from then and the start of manga
I think the incosistency might make it too problematic to actually come to a conclusion regarding ageing. Id rather it just be a mystery as of now unexplained by Kubo as an explenation would me like the mitoclorians in Star Wars, that didn't help one bit.
When Momo started shinigame school she grew physically byt Hitsu didn't. When the vaizards went away they didn't grow but Gin grew up fast. By apperance only it is impossible to come to any kind of conclusion.
I'm not talking about age that's the thing, im talking about the obscurities that could take place from say SS's time to the Human World time
