Remove Scratches from Your Watch Crystal STYLE

Postby koimaster » April 15th 2018, 7:01pm

For watch lovers, a fresh scratch on an otherwise flawless crystal is a devastating sight. The feeling can be even worse on a brand-new watch, or one that just returned from servicing. But before you send your tainted timepiece back for a crystal replacement, you may want to consider a home remedy. First you need to determine what can be done — and that depends on the type of crystal you’ve scratched.

Diamond paste, huh. I've got few mineral with scratches and have done some polishing, but this sounds like I could make it worse.

As far as cases and bracelets, red jeweler's rouge to polish scratches on gold, silver or platinum cases - green jeweler's rouge for stainless.
