    I have recently bought an Apple Watch and i have seen today a small gab between the upper bezel and the screen...
    If i watch the screen under the sun i can see a reflecting tiny part in the upper left corner (between screen and black bezel)
    It is a problem or is normal?
    Later I will post some pics

    I can confirm this on my AppleWatch. There is a silver line noticeable in the upper left corner.
    Don't know what it is. Maybe some kind of Sensor?

    Thank you Sir!
    I suppose that this is a first generation flaw ( I suspect a screen connector but only my cent on the argument)

    I believe these are marks cause by opening up units that had faulty haptic engines in them.

    I have seen it on the only two watches I've viewed. First one had 3 almost pin marks equidistant apart.

    The one I own HD about the same width in a different place but a solid gap.

    You are lucky if you only have a small amount. I have gotten watches where it is all around. I am not sure if it is adhesive, or if it is a jaggedly cut sapphire glass.

    I have seen this on EVERY watch I have had (and I have been through a lot). Only one unit had it in one spot at about 1-2cm which was barely noticeable.

    I have this problem. SS 42mm. Gap between top of case and sapphire. This is my third Apple Watch and my original and my replacements have all be utter crud. Crap between OLED and sapphire and gaps around the sapphire. Simply not good enough for a £859 watch.
