Can you maybe post a picture that shows the scratch?


Seriously.

Good grief.

If that bothers you then youíll go crazy if you see the clasp on my 116519. But donít worry, nobody will ever see it unless youíre surrendering to police. In which case you have much bigger problems.

Ah, the old restaurant table scratch. Many many more to come.

To be fair, itís a rubber watch with a bit of white gold. Hardly a scratch magnet!

I don't see the scratch. Even so, life goes on. There will be more.

Hard to see the scratch as it is on the edge. Wait till you get a deep one centered on the clasp. No way to avoid them if you wear the watch. Just be aware of the watch and where it is in space and most scratches will just be hairlines.

I thought this was a joke at first... I have a YM on Rose, trying to avoid scratches on the clasp is like avoiding getting wet in the rain without an umbrella.

Wear it, itís a sports watch, if you need to have it serviced in 5 years then theyíll all be gone. Who cares, love it, wear it and enjoy it.

1) Eat somewhere else next time.

2) Get other natural Wabi-Sabi to blend this in?

Good.

Got that out of the way early, because it absolutely was going to happen again and again and again. Now it's yours.

It's now a unique Daytona. If you get it polished out, guess what will happen within 24 hours of getting it back.

It isn't in the easiest of places to see, unless you wear it upside down (not recommended).

I can't see the damage in the photo.

SS scratches just as easy on a stone surface. I see no difference in marks on my PM or SS polished links.

Comes service time in a decade or so the RSC will polish it out as part of the service.

I initially had the OCD's over my first Rolex when I got it. Try not to worry about it right now. Sounds crazy, but as time goes on, there will be more scratches and they'll all kind of mesh and work together to make the overall effect less and less noticeable. This is a normal reaction. Itís a Rolex, itís almost bullet proof, but there will always be scratches that make it yours. If over time you just canít get comfortable then take it for a light polish. But knowing itís normal, just enjoying it and not worrying about every scratch will make it less and less annoying.

Anything you wear on your wrist will scratch.

May you have the serenity to accept the things you can't change, courage to change the ones you can and, especially in this case, wisdom to tell the difference between them.

If you are super annoyed with that scratch then get ready to book anger management classes cause you will get plenty more scratches. Except if you never wear it.

You could always purchase the watch protective films that are sold by various companies if it will provide peace of mind for you

Wow. Did you really spend that much money on a watch that you though was just gold plated?

Not saying you should necessarily do this but there are tons of aftermarket clasps with glidelock that you can wear without fear. But you have a WG clasp! I would never consider switching that thing out.

The first....you're obviously not wearing it as much. I even put on m y glasses, still not sure I even see what you're talking about.
Leave and enjoy, when you get a lot....well they'll all blend in and you won't really notice.

I work at a computer desk typing all day with my Rolex on and all of my Rolex watches have scratches and wear on the clasp. I ain't taking my Rolex off unless I'm doing something that can damage the case. The wear on my clasps don't bother me.
