    I can’t see the picture link is broken and you might as well use Apple Care to get a replacement.

    That’s entirely up to you, it’s such a tiny mark I wouldn’t worry about it.

    I would not have this fixed right away.
    Just wait until your AppleCare is gonna expire and have it fixed then.
    By then your watch will have more scratches and whatnots.

    1. Don't drop it on a glass top table.
    2. Put a protective case on it.
    3. Don't worry about tiny scratches.

    I’d try not to worry about it. I’m the same way where little scratches like that can bother me, but it is a watch and watches tend to get scratched up.

    Seriously, We're having a long drawn out thread about a "tiny" spot. It happens, it's a watch thats worn on your wrist and exposed to everything.

    You don’t prevent it. Realize that it happens and it’s no big deal.

    I agree with other posters, don’t worry about it. And if it really does bother you take it in. Personally I wouldn’t take it, maybe just buy a bumper case or something. Here’s mine, I am hard on anything on my wrist so I bought the gshock like heavy duty case

    This is the kind of the thing that the OP worries about on ALL his devices.

    C’mon Alex. You’ve been around long enough to know that unless you either don’t touch the device at all or completely seal it from having any outside contact, it will eventually show signs of wear, especially with daily use. In addition, since an Watch is worn on your wrist and can easily bump into things, the risk is bit higher.

    It's impossible to own a device and not get some very minor cosmetic defect on it one way or another. It would probably be beneficial for you to not comb over your device every waking moment looking for every minor thing wrong with it. Instead, take time to enjoy your device for what it is and not worry about such trivial things.

    I've been using stainless steel AWs since first gen and up to now, I'm not particular at all on micro scratches appearing over time, even on my recently purchased Series 3 LTE.

    Why would the OP not use the Apple insurance (assuming minor cosmetic damage is covered), if she/he has it?

    Good question. There are three good reasons, in my opinion:

    1. OP says that he/she doesn't want to
    2. It's a very minor scratch, and the deductible for repair is $69
    3. You are only allowed two damage repair incidents under AppleCare+ in the two years that it covers. I'd suggest that holding on to those two incidents in case of a broken or badly scratched crystal, or more critical damage, is a better idea. As @Tartarus suggested, OP can just wait until AppleCare+ is almost over to have that scratch plus any others that have accumulated fixed at that time for $69.
