    My Series 2 has been naked since day 1. One of the benefits of having a stainless steel case is that the scratches add to it's character like a traditional watch

    And mind you, I really can't say I've been "maingat" at all. The glass watch face has been struck several times already... still no scratches, or at least none that's easily visible. So I guess I'm part lucky as well with my AW so far

    I see it this way...if you have a Breitling or say, IWC, would you prefer to cover it up? Same goes for my Apple Watch Series 3. :)

    Bought a whitestone dome tempered glass. A bit complicated to install and at $35 it is expensive. But it does come with two tempered glass and a metal case.

    My  Watch Hermès Series 4 is still naked, and still looking to cover it up.

    I like to keep my tech stuff in pristine condition, even though I have more expensive watches than this (which are specifically designed to be tough) so I’d like to cover it up one day, once I find a decent one. :)

    Was using it naked but after the first screen scratch, I immediately ordered a screen protector when I got home haha.

    Also bought a spigen rugged armor case but I plan on removing it once my screen protector arrives. Can't tolerate the bulk and i'm not a fan of the "G Shock" look.

    Mm....while cleaning my aluminum Series 4 last night, which I've worn naked since day 1, I noticed a small nick on the screen. Tiny. Didn't bother me. Part of wear and tear. Will continue wearing it naked.

    Same thing happens to traditional watches, from the most expensive to the cheapest, and one lives with it.

    To paraphrase a popular saying, Nicks happen.

    My stainless steel 44mm series 4 watch is naked, in its own glory. It has been ever since I purchased it.

    for someone who's been a watch guy for most of my adult life, we have this tendency to protect our watch arm/wrist when it comes to navigating malls/airports/subways etc... wearing an apple watch is no different, so naked then.

    I wear mine naked. I am not to particular to have it encased in a bulky case.
