Every ding dent scratch scar is as individual as a fingerprint. great way to identify your watch.

I pretend nothing happened. I also make a point not to examine it for damage. I will eventually check out the watch but not till some time has passed, and usually at home at the end of the day.

The GMT was serviced and repaired by Rolex - $180 for a new crystal. According to the story Rolex also serviced the movement (under warranty) as they were concerned glass fragments might have found their way into the movement.
I guess the moral to the story is, if you shatter your watch crystal, hack the movement so if some glass does get in, it doesn't trash the movement.
I own a Sinn U1. I don't worry about it. That tegmented bezel is awesome. I bet the tegmented case version would be incredibly tough to scratch/ding/mark.
Send it out to be bead blasted

I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
I had just received my Watchco SM300 and re-united it with newly bought Omega mesh. I've never had nor handled the new-vintage mesh bracelet (w/ seat belt buckle) before. First time I tried the watch on, I didn't correctly secure the buckle and the watch fell to the hardwood floor, slightly denting the bezel.
Oops... oh well. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, it's time wear the heck out of it.
I hit my Planet Ocean against a metal door frame. I had a moment of terror but after inspecting the watch I couldn't find so much as a scratch!
Just posted about this. I dropped my new Tsunami onto a hard marble floor and it hit face down with a loud SMACK! Fortunately the crystal was unmarked as was the rest of the watch.
Unfortunately the impact had bent the second hand and it was running into the minute hand and stopping. I had to remove the movement and straighten out the second hand......it went very smoothly and the watch has been working perfectly ever since. That was my first time removing a movement.
