After years of fretting about dings and scratches I finally discovered that the only way to deal with them is to wear them proudly. Otherwise it will drive you crazy. Why have a watch if you are not going to wear it?

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! :)

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.
I had this exact same problem and yes, mine has several scuffs there. I would recommend obtaining a new clasp somehow.

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.

Is it possible to order an additional or replacement CW clasp from the site. I suppose I should send this to Christopher. Has anyone done this.
