On pre-order day, I was all set to order a Space Grey with black sports band. When the store finally came up and I got the chance to order (finger over mouse for the final click), I bottled it and went into re-thinking mode. Several hours later, I instead ordered the Stainless Steel Space Black (estimated July delivery). My reasoning went like this: Space Grey looks lovely. But it won't withstand much abuse. The case will mark up and any damage that goes through the anodised finish will look bad. And the Ion-X screen is more prone to damage than a sapphire screen. Which led me to Stainless Steel. As the owner of a stainless steel watch, I know that this can also get marked very easily. But a sapphire screen is made from solid stuff, likely much more resilient than Ion-X. This led me to Space Black, which seemed to be more robust - on paper - than anything else. However, I have since seen a couple of posts that suggest this is less impervious to damage than I had hoped. One member has scratched the case. Another has peeling on their bracelet. Are they exceptional cases? Hard to tell, because these watches have had the longest lead times. I am now considering a complete reversal - perhaps the Silver Aluminium with Blue Sport Band. If you mark up silver aluminium, it will look... silver. If you ruin a sports band... buy another. Perhaps stick a screen protector on it. Perhaps even [shudders] a case. I am not just back to square one. I am several steps behind that. I've shared my logic, you know my concerns. Any constructive thoughts or advice, please?
