    First scratch - haven't even had it a week... Can't for the life of me figure out how either??? ... It's underneath so not that visible but just knowing it's there irks me... I wear it on my left wrist so crown side faces my hand. Something would have needed to get underneath. Can't recall anything happening. Haven't dropped it either. Maybe I wiped it not noticing a piece of debris on it... No clue... Grrrrrr
    It's like that first scratch on a car... always upsetting but eventually you move past it. Sorry to hear about your watch. Maybe something got under there or do you slide the charger off? I do that as I've read the stories of the back coming off. Either way, still a nice looking watch, and you're right that being on the underside could be considered "lucky".

    Well for grins I went to the Apple Store (it's only 10 mins away) to see what they would say. I showed the Apple rep the damage and asked what I could do about it. Was completely up front about it, showed him the nick and said I didn't know how it happened, that it was odd it was right to the metal (through the DLC coating), and that I didn't recall doing anything to cause such damage. Told him I bought the watch last Sunday. He had to ask another Apple rep who then looked at it for about 10 sec - ran his nail over it - and said: "Get him a new one". I didn't argue obviously.

    I was fully expecting to be told it wasn't covered or something to that effect. Not taking for granted how they resolved this. My lucky day I guess (although not so lucky that it happened in the first place). I consider this a freebie. I'll be getting Apple Care + before the 60 day window that's for sure, for any serious damages.

    Tell me about it. Training accidents suck. This hit the edge of my watch.

    I have had mine for 5 months and wear it everyday. No dings or scratches. Have banged it a few times but no problems.

    I don't have a physical job, but I am a hard core exerciser. I am in the gym everyday doing all sorts of stuff and my Watch has one small scratch on the SS case, but you can barely tell its there. If it bugged me I could get a SS polishing cloth and get rid of it.

    My screen is flawless and I have been wearing the watch since June 1st. I only take it off to charge and shower. I even sleep in the watch now.

    Space black SS and used daily. I rotate between a SS band a Spigen rugged case. I wear it during all occasions (working out, work) and it still looks flawless.

    My 42mm SS long already has multiple tiny scuff marks on its left side (above the speaker) but I'm not bothered by it. It's supposed to be worn as it should. My Rolex DSSD already has scuff marks on its case, let alone be bothered on the AW.

    My space black SS looks flawless but I've only had it a month. My wife's silver SS has tons of light scratches and have to buff it often.

    Glad I went with SS. Sapphire glass and ceramic back well worth the extra cost.

    So far I've got one little nick near the face. I dropped it on tile flooring like an *****. If it gets worse I purchased the AppleCare on it so I'm not worried too much.

    How's are your watches holding up?
    Any scrathes scuffs or cracks?
    Please posts pictures
    I've had my watch 6 months and it looks the same as the day I got it. I wear it EVERY day all day. For the first 5 months, I didn't use a case at all, but have started using them now. More for the color/appearance than protection.
