Hear, hear..... Scratches are unavoidable if you use your watch. You know what's funny: I don't mind the scratches I made myself on my watches, they have a history I know... But I recently bought a Rolex with only minor scratches, but that is different somehow, they are not 'my scratches'. I'll probably send it to the service-centre for a overhaul and polish. That way I can make my own scratches on it!

I had this exact same problem and yes, mine has several scuffs there. I would recommend obtaining a new clasp somehow.billkt3 wrote:I have worn mine every day for two weeks. (sincie it arrived) I am a little concerned about the vulnerability of the clasp. It is just at the right spot to be banged or scraped while any typing or other desk work is being done. I noticed several scuff marks on the nicely initialed lower part of the clasp. Anyone else notice this or have this concern. Any ideas how to prevent it other than take it off or do no work. Thanks.
For anyone just getting a new CW watch that wants to keep theirs as pristeen as possible, I wouldn't wear it until I had obtained a replacement clasp from somewhere and put my original CW one away. Live and learn.
