Why black spot appears on the screen Apple Watch?

This black spot (black spots) on displayCPC Apple Watch, is not the result of a software error (watchOS) or mechanical shock. Therefore, it is not a solution to reset Apple Watch, because the stain still won't go away. It is permanent, and over time it can increase in size.
Most of those who face this problem at Apple Watch, say that the black spot on the screen appeared about after 12 - 14 months of use a Apple Watch.
Apparently it's a manufacturing defect. One of the layers that make up the screen comes off and allows water (be it condensation) to reach the OLED / LED screen. one way to solve is in a authorized service Apple.
