    Sorry if this is addressed somewhere else, I could not find it.
    Since we have seen the SS Apple Watch scratch on the casing, and polish quite easily, will it be the same for the Space Black model?
    Or will the Space Black coating prevent such correction?

    Wasn't sure if the Space Black was anodized or...

    The space black has a DLC finish on it. It won't scratch like the regular SS does.

    It shouldn't scratch at all. In fact, there's videos out there of DLC scratch tests that show it's almost indestructible! :)

    If Apple gets it right (which I hope they have) we won't need to worry about softness of the material. Polishing it really won't be possibly, other than to buff away what's on top of the DLC coating.

    Great to hear.
    Just re-watched the Steel Craftsmanship video on Apple's website, and totally missed the DLC coating reference.
    Thanks!
