    Hello all!

    I know that we have only had a very short time with the new version of the new series 4 Apple Watch, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me the durability of the SS Gold finish. I have the S3 Ceramic edition and am thinking of changing over to the SS Gold. My only issue is that my ceramic is so durable that it looks brand new even after wearing it for 9 months, most days 23 hours a day due to having to monitor my sleep and my activity during the day. Thank goodness for the quick charging!! Helps me to monitor all these things.

    Anyways! I would love to hear everyone’s feedback on their awesome watch!!
    Thank you!! ♥️

    I'm interested in others as well, I've had it for a week and so far it's good, no micro scratches that SS got.

    That’s good to hear that there are no micro scratches after a week of wear. Mind if I ask how you wear it? Sleep, gym, work?

    Everything except sleep. Office Work, Road Biking mainly.

    But I am curious if it scratches. I still have the SBSS and wondering which to keep.

    I'm curious as to this also.

    So the iPhone XS and S4 gold have the same PVD coating.

    I think this would be a fair assessment of how the watch would look after some unfortunate knocks.
