    anyone else get any tiny scratches on the ceramic back portion of the watch? in the right light i see a couple of small hairline scratches. i saw a larger one yesterday but can't find it now. i was hoping the others would rub off but i can't seem to get rid of them. i can't feel them with my fingernail but they appear to be scratches. i know the zirconia ceramic isn't 100% scratchproof (nothing really is) but was disappointed. i noticed when i gave my watch a real good examination after leaving it at someones house for a couple of weeks. they stored it carefully for me, so they were probably there before and i just hadn't seen them, but who knows. anyway, just curious if anyone else notices any tiny hairline marks when they look closely under the light. it's the back of the watch so it shouldn't be a big deal. but i am super careful with mine.

    I don't have any scratches. But I do know the black Milanese loop is known to cause damage from the DLC coating if that's a band that you have.

    Thanks. I remember reading about that. No, I only have the sport bands and SS Milanese loop.

    Try Pencil Eraser...
    Usually ceramic is very hard to scratch, and in most cases, what seems to be a scratch, is actually some material from the other object that got stuck to it..
    A pencil eraser could surprise you, try it...
