    It's stainless steel. Unless you only ever wear it around felt and silk you'll get small scratches. You won't see them unless you stare at it while extremely close.

    It's DLC treated. I certainly hope that's just a piece of lint and not a scratch. DLC done right should be very difficult to scratch.

    It's more like other things leave traces on the watch. Rubbing it with a cloth will get a lot of that out.

    Is it scratched or is that dust? Hard to tell.

    dammn. that's a lot of scratches!

    I'm calling scratchgate now. (I think it's silly).

    Funny how my 2012 rMBP 15 never get much scratches. Maybe they used a different grade Aluminum?

    Space black with scratches. The reason I went with SS.

    But stuff will rub off onto it and sometimes can be hard to clean off without some effort. But, that's fine. I personally think this little line people are fretting about is some lint caught by the button.

    I agree. What I'm seeing is a low-light image with noise reduction artifacts of a watch with finger residue and dust.

    DLC. It still scratches and scuffs on the corners. Obviously not as bad as PVD but still...

    Yes it will. That's an incorrect statement ! It's more scratch resistant , but DLC worn as a daily watch will scratch. I own one. It shows wear, much better than PVD

    ----------

    Do you see him trying to scratch the panerai watches? No, if it was ceramic he would be scratching the watches . Don't trust what you see on YouTube. One would come to a conclusion iPhone 6 plus iPhones bend really easily if they trusted you tube

    No question. Seems more noticeable on the Black Stainless. Must be a very weak anodizing process. :apple:

    How do we know those are scratches. It's not a good enough photo for me to really tell.
