Weathered SubC?

Just curious if anyone has pictures of their SubC after years of wear. I've only seen pictures of it being pristine so it'd be lovely to see some worn down SubC's!

Of course the ceramic bezel and dial will be spotless, but the case/bracelet would definitely go through scratches after years of wearing.

I've had mine for almost 3 years now and its my daily and gets banged around a bit.

I just put on a rubber b strap but you can see some surface sratches especially on the deployment clasp.

Not my video, but here's a review of a Sub that was used on the beach for 3 yrs. Lots of micro-scratches on the steel, but good otherwise.

Ugh I know it can be buffed out but I just can't watch that guy gratuitously rubbing sand on that watch without cringing.

What is the lifespan of those ceramic inserts before they start to fade and what is the primary cause that makes em fade? Anyone?

As far as I know, ceramic doesn’t fade. The platinum numbers could/can/will damage, with rough treatment.
