    Desk Diver Scratches

    should it bother me that all my watches with steel bracelets have a bunch of desk diver scratches? they're all on the same spot . . . on the part of the bracelet that cover the outer portion of my wrist. Would you get them buffed out, or just be resigned to the fact that this happens to steel bracelets?

    Because scratches are inevitable I would not bother. Whether the scratches should bother you is a question I can't answer.

    I have the same problem, and I've decided to let it go. I wear the same watch most every day to work, and if I wanted to keep the scratches to a manageable look, I'd have to get work done on it every 90 days or so. No way that's going to happen.

    I just don't look at that part of my watch too often - problem solved!

    if it really really bothers you, wear long sleeve to work. It won't completely proof your watch from desk diving scratches but it will certainly reduce it.

    It happens to steel and gold...Those desk diver scratches are part of you....Who you are, what you do.
    To erase them, is to erase you. Wear them with pride.

    If you acquire so many scratches it bothers you, get them buffed out. But there is no sense in doing this until you get quite a few of them.

    Yup.

    Everyone who is a regular on this forum has some form of watch ADD. Some just control it better than others....

    Agreed, I always find it adds character to any piece of jewelry including watches.

    If you really want to weep get a polished Titanium bracelet. They make steel look as tough as old boots. I haven't bothered buffing mine out as it will only happen again.
