    I think I've scratched mine.

    Well, I HOPE I did, because the only way to avoid scratching a watch is to not wear it -- which then begs the question, "Why buy one?"

    I am a woodworker and the screen is fine. The corners of the watch are marked though.

    Yes, scratched mine. Thinking of getting the SS as that has a sapphire screen in space black and having this for workouts etc as its already scratched

    My Sports series 0 shows quite a bit of usage after a year or so. Expected, as I always wear it.
    I'm strongly contemplating an SS or SB one for the sapphire screen, and I'd probably hate the first scratch even more...

    My S2 Black stainless looks like the day I got it. I am very impressed as I do hit it on things.

    The sapphire screen has no visible scratches, might have micro scratches in the coating but these are of no issue to me if I can not see them. Even the storm grey leather loop looks nearly new.

    Get the ceramic Edition watch if you don't want to get any scratches. I've got a 19 year old Junghans and it hasn't got a mark on it.

    Do you wear your Junghans often? 19 years and no scratches is quite the record.

    I haven't worn it too much over the last six months or so but it's seen a lot of action since I bought it.

    Can you tell I wear my Apple Watch to much or like talking about it? I was close though, off by one MM from a screen shot.

    I've been wearing the rose gold "Series 0" apple watch since it was released and I've banged it on so much stuff, however I don't really see much if any scratches at all. Maybe I'm just lucky...or very blind

    If you don't see it except when under certain lights, stop worrying about it.

    My AW have some scratches it is because I did not put case protector on it. Apple Store wants my $200 and I can't afford it it.

    The question is not "Who's scratched their Apple Watch?" it should be "Who HASN'T scratched their Apple Watch?"

    I've only had my SBSS for a week and noticed a very light scratch within a couple of days. My suspicion is it was there out of the box, since I have been babying it. But I know they will come with time, so I'm not going to bother trying to exchange it. Outside of that tiny micro-scratch, it is flawless. The finish on the SB model is really a sight to behold.

    Its a watch, it will get scratched. If they get numerous enough to bother me, well that's why I bought AppleCare.
