    Re: Hairline on SMPc bezel?

    Do you have access to a 10x loupe? Have you looked at the line with it? Iím pretty sure it is a scratch if they tell you it is but it doesnít hurt to get a second opinion. I thought it would be a material deposit on the bezel from rubbing against something, probably metal. Although polished ceramic is really not prone to this. It happens more in bezels like the one on the 8500 Planet Ocean which are matte. Is there any chance you rubbed against a engagement ring?

    Unfortunately I do not have a loupe. I can rule out rings as I wore it to work for a few days and to hang out Sunday with it. The person I was with did not wear rings and I didnít make contact with anything that would have done this. Thatís why this is a shock to me. Iím sure Iíll accept it in a few days since itís something I have to actually look for to see but itís just irritating I know itís there.

    get a razor and carefully scratch at the scratch. see if anything happens. you have nothing to lose and wont get anymore scratched. What's weird is that a scratch on the insert would be blue, not white-ish as your image shows

    $1200 to replace the bezel is definitely something I wouldnít do. Especially if you have to ďlook forĒ the line. Makes you think how much replacing a Planet Ocean Ti Liquid Metal bezel in a Boutique would be.

    Yes, most likely this is the case.
    If I was in your shoes, I would get one of those Cratex abbrassive sticks.

    Am I correct to assume if itís an actual scratch itíd be visible in all angles and not certain angles and light hitting it?
