    We know that aluminum scratches, but aside from not being able to survive a skillet dropping onto the case, how is the silver aluminum proving on durability?

    Aluminium alloy is relatively soft. If dinged it's gonna dent, it's as simple as that, no big deal. Don't get all worked up about it, what happens happens. See it as your watch aquiring unique patina, making it even more personal than when you took it out of the box. *shrug* :)

    Honestly, I'm more concerned about those annoying hairline scratches on the glass. They just sit there and laugh at you every time you look at your watch.

    Someone posted they accidentally dropped it from their night stand and now the face has a hairline scratch. I thought you could take a knife to it without scratching it.

    Will Apple Care cover the scratches if they are too noticeable?

    I'm not terribly worried about the case itself. When it's not in my wallet, my silver iPhone 6 is naked. Dumb question - how closely will the watch match the composite of my iPhone?

    Unfortunately it is really soft and I'm sure after one month everybody has a unique watch.

    The warranty will not cover scratches or dings
