Hi guys, can I check with you all if it is worthwhile to pay more for the AW2 Stainless Steel or the Aluminium face ? The difference quite a lot. Does the AL got scratches or worn out more easily ? Thanks for feedback
Though I don't own AW yer. But Yep like what htngwilliam said, I think Stainless Steel is harder than Aluminium. But Aluminium should be lighter than Stainless Steel.

Thus if you want own AW and didn't want to pay so much, and am a gentle person when come to handling watch. I guess Aluminium good enough.

For me, I likely will go for the Stainless Steel version if I can afford it.

Stainless steel comes with sapphire glass. I think worthwhile. For engineers, steel harder than aluminum. And sapphire glass better than the ion-X or whatever u call it for the sport series

Unfortunately, Steel also will dent if you hit against other stuff but sapphire won't crack. One time someone watch and mine hit against one another and mine break (some cheapo brands). After that I use better watch, kana hit, no problem
thanks for your feedback

front/clock face is fine.

in hindsight i wish i had not bought SS given it does show markings and apparently needs polishing to fix. fortunately for me though my watch spoiled so they gave me a new one and i put a clear case on it this time.

Hard to say because I compare my friends with aluminium and it doesn't seem to look scruffed much after a year whereas my SS one can see the marks on it when you look closely.

aluminium come with ion-x glass
stainless steel come with sapphire crystal

ion-x glass will gt scratched.

sapphire crystal will not,
all the luxary watches equip with sapphire crystal,
its hardness 2nd to diamond only.
although it won't get scratched, it brittle, it will break too.

ask anyone wearing rolex/omega watches,
by juz looking at the dial, it always loojs brand new,
coz the glass is scratchless.

for luxury watches,
regardless what brand,
inspite if different exotic/precious material used,
they all come equip with saphhire crystal.
