    Are you telling me it's not High-Tech?!

    Seems like you "desk dived" on a surface harder than ceramic which is not hard to do. Ceramic is not scratch-proof, just very resistant to most materials it comes in contact with.

    Are you certain it is a real Rado?
    I have one with a similar bracelet and it is immune to desk diving scratches so far.

    Excellent question. Where did you buy the watch? If you got to good a deal to be true it may be a fake.

    I've never managed to scratch any of the ceramic bezels I have had and there were some bangs (against metal, wood, stone, etc) that made me too scared to even look at it. I had a ceramic pen (that I seem to have misplaced) that probably "desk dived" more than any watch (I put it down on wood table without much care) and that never scratched. Now i really need to find that pen, love that thing and it wasn't exactly cheap either... =\ hmmm

    Yes, just be careful where you drag your wrist.

    I've purchased leather blotter pads for all my desks (at work and at home) so I can limit the amount of damage these hard surfaces can do to my watch bracelets. It's not fool proof, but it does help.

    Re: Rado high tech ceramic micro scratches

    Is there a glaze coating on top of the ceramic?

    Almost anything can be scratched. I'm always surprised when people buy things with the opinion that the item cannot be scratched.

    I have a female friend who has a rectangular Movado. She broke the sapphire crystal straight down the middle from 12 to 6 o'clock.

    The first thing she said to me was, I thought you couldn't break sapphire?

    Yeah. It looks like you went desk diving. It is part of owning a watch. Having that high gloss finish makes the scratches stand out
