Hello.

I pre-ordered the apple watch series 2 and it was delivered yesterday when i opened the box and took the watch out i noticed the screen was scratched.

Has anybody else had this happen?.. I am kinda worried about my replacement coming and the same thing happening. Is there quality control lacking as of late?

Thanks Scott

The chance of receiving a 2nd Watch which is scratched out of the box is maybe 1/1000000. Why don't you just wait it out?

wait what out?

I get that opening a product and finding it scratched is frustrating. What I don't get is the immediate questioning of quality control.

I can tell you that we don't have people all over threads claiming their watches were scratched. This is probably an isolated incident.

Best of luck on your replacement!

if it wasn't 779 in canada i would consider it
My new series 2 stainless had multiple screen micro scratches out of the box. My original series o stainless watch has absolutely no screen scratches after over a year of owning it. The coating on the series 2 seems different than the original. I'm concerned that there is a problem with the series 2 coating. I suspect there will be more reports of this issue as more people acquire the series 2 stainless watches.
