    That may be a hairline crack. Have it checked by Apple.

    I have the same on my space black series 2. They just appeared.

    There is no Apple store here in Ireland so I’d have to send it off to Apple but I’m afraid they won’t do anything because the case has a couple of chips in the dlc and a ding or two. They’ll probably try and blame me for it. Because there are a few dings they’ll blame it on impact damage. But the watch has never been dropped.

    A google has come up with a possibility that it’s the battery is swelling and causing the sapphire to seperate from the oled screen. Also apparently there is a problem with series 2 batteries swelling and Apple has extended the warranty to 3 years but I’m not hopeful because of the damage to the case.

    It’s either separating or delaminating. Your only option is through Apple to have them inspect it.

    It looks like a delamination, where parts become unglued due to heat etc. I have two macbook pros where the screens delaminated. Apple covered the cost of repair on my 2013 13" mbp. My guess is that your watch is covered as well.

    Reference the bolded, I doubt that. The OP has a Series 2 Apple Watch, which I assume doesn’t have a warranty, (Unless the OP has AppleCare). The only way Apple will replace this type of issue, is if they were extending some type of grace post-warranty exception _and_ if Apple determines that the OP is not at fault for any type of issue with the watch.
