Here is a thread regarding someone that had their watch get scratched.

http://forums.everythingicafe.com/index.php?threads/Apple-Watch---Scratch-Already!.108149/

They ended up using grit sandpaper up to 2000 (800, 1500, then 2000) and said that they will continue polishing it, but not often, only when needed, yearly they say.
That thread you linked is regarding the regular silver stainless steel. The OP in this thread asked if anyone scratched their black Apple watch yet. You would not want to sand a black Apple watch.

I apologize. I am unfamiliar somewhat with the different types of the Apple Watch. Off topic but I wish there weren't so many different stuff to choose from. Back on topic, may I link a discussion from reddit regarding asking of this similar question, about a Space Black SS watch?

Just remember that you don't have to reply to topics you aren't familiar with.

I disagree. Why should they limit their customers on choices just so those who don't want the watch and don't want to research it aren't confused about how many colors there are? Options are great. They can make a lot more people happy if they give them choices.

Yes, feel free to post helpful information.

It is interesting to read the responses. Of course as mentioned you'll sometimes have to look hard to see any scratch.

"I've put the space black through some hard use with rough concrete and it looks flawless. I'm pleasantly surprised with the bezel. I expected the sapphire to hold up but I never imagined the rest of the watch would hold up so well."
