This does not look nearly as bad as you think it does.

Sorry, though. :concern:

If you don't mind me asking, how did it happen? I'm curious about the SS scratching/not scratching more than the aluminum.

Try buffing it. But be careful about buffing too much.

Standard jewelry stainless cleaner with a soft rag should remove all the superficial scratches. Any deep gouges would require a visit to a jeweler to seek their advice.

I'm surprised it withstood a scratch against s cement wall without more serious injury.
Sorry OP! Hope it gets repaired.

I mean jeweler.
If you go to edit your post, and then chose "Go Advanced", you can edit the post title :)

As for your watch, sounds like the scratches could have been worse. Looks like the glass and frame surrounding it did not get damaged.

I feel your pain. Even though that most likely can be buffed out. It must feel like you have the Grand Canyon running down the side of your watch right now. :eek:

This may help those who clang against concrete. Several companies are already offering various different types of protective accessories for the Watch . Mobile device accessory maker X-Doria makes a stylish metal bumper for the Watch called the Defense Edge that retails for $29.99.

This might be ok for knock around wear, but I'd remove it for certain activities like going out to dinner and such.
