    Just a reminder, that the link bracelet( especially the clasp) will get scuffed with normal wear.
    This should not be an AC+ issue.
    Since the bracelet is Brushed SS, just get a plain scotchguard pad, and buff with the grain( lengthwise ) to remove the scuffs.
    DO NOT use on the watch itself.

    You know people are still going to complain about this anyway. ;)

    It's true... SS link bracelets scuff.

    Go figure. :D

    That's why they made them brushed rather than polished. Hides the scuffs much better.

    I was surprised to see some after just the first half day of use, but I've never had a stainless watch band that didn't scuff.

    My stainless link bracelet on my old watch is scuffed so bad I wanted to replace it. Citizen charges almost $300 for a new band, so I never did. It just happens from doing things out in the world. Typing and resting your arms on the desk is a big culprit.

    Not if people use proper typing technique, which requires you to keep your wrists straight and that means not touching your palms/wrists on the surface below the keyboard. Unfortunately, schools no longer offer typing classes (which would have taught this) and I'm actually old enough to have them in high school.

    I took 4 semesters of typing/keyboarding in high school and I still do it. Not saying it's correct, but we all have our bad habits.

    As I've said before, anyone who complains about this have never worn a watch. Either that or they have never worn a stainless steel watch. I'm new to this forum and I notice a lot of people freak out over the smallest thing. "My watch got scratched after one day and I babied it". The watch didn't scratch itself lol! It normal anyway. It does make me cringe when I see folks just put there watch on a table. There is a reason jeweler's put jewelry on a mat or cloth.

    Apple users have a higher then average amount of folks with bad OCD. I think the focus apple puts on clean design attracts them.

    No doubt some enterprising company will come up with clear, self adhesive "band protectors"

    And some folks will go wild over them. :)

    My dad taught me how to type properly when I was a kid a few years back. :D

    Brushing with Scotch Brite pads is easy. I've done it on my Rolex. :cool:

    I've used a Scotch Brite pad on my Omega Seamaster and my newly-acquired "used" Apple Watch with link bracelet. It worked just fine. Go with the "grain" and it takes those everyday wear and tear marks away.

    OP is correct.

    This complaining about scuffs is why I posted my poll asking if people had owned watches before.

    Ha! Wow. Can't blame me for the bump, though. ;)

    Nope. Maybe a Sharpie.

    (although I've heard it's pretty durable)
