I scratched the hell out of a brand new Patek the first day I bought it. My wedding ring put a huge gouge in the case back. Didn’t take a photo of it but since then I either take off my ring or go out of my way to make sure my ring and caseback never touch.
I don't think a watch is officially yours until you put your first scratch or ding in it. That is how the relationship goes beyond the sum of it's parts. Each ding or scratch now tells a story. Congrats on your first blemish.
