    Off Topic post Your bezel scratches

    I was looking at my two most frequently worn watches and noticed the minor bezel scratches were in roughly the same place on each watch...
    I must be doing something consistently wrong I thought... maybe I've been walking through doorways wrong all these years and can't help hitting the watch on the post the same way each time.
    Is it just me?
    Do I need help?

    Or maybe everyone tends to scratch their bezels in one area more than others.

    So how about a quick poll?

    Its an easy one...
    Look at your most frequently worn watch then make a call on where the most scratches are on the bezel.
    Answer the poll with the 12h reference that is closest to your most scratches.

    Don't worry if you have a rotating bezel - if you're an OCD WIS you should be keeping it the same place most of the time anyway.

    Thanks in advance for your help in this very important scientific experiment.

    6 &12 are about equal but it is a titanium case which appears to scratch more easily than steel.

    I've scratched both of my metallic bezel watches at the 5.30 position.

    Re: Your bezel scratches

    Unfortunately for this poll, my ceramic bezel does not scratch. I wish 'no bezel' scratches would have been an option. I've avoided metal bezels because bezel scratches are my pet peeve, only outdone by crystal scratches.

    The only scratch mark I have on my ceramic bezel is at the 12pm marker (not on the ceramic but the platinum inidicator)

    I have a few scratches on the bezel of my eco-drive, and while it does suck to get that first one, I think it looks better over time when it evens out. :)

    There's no consistency among my frequently worn watches. Some have them here, some have them there, etc. *shrug*

    I never have my bezels set in the 'correct' position with the arrow or marker on 12, they just stay where ever they are after fiddling with them, so my scratches are all over the place, i wouldnt know where it was at the time of scratching.

    2 o'clock for me. I've noticed it on more than one watch.
