    Anyone know anything about this Edox defin watch?

    I found this watch after clearing out old stuff that was taking space. As I remember my grandfather gave it to me in the 80s when he got a new one.
    So Im guessing its mid 70s or early 80s.

    It says edox delfin on the face, and on the back it says swiss made 200572 superwaterproof 20 atm shockprotected.

    I have not opened it, but it runs and feels like manual wind.

    Yes, manual (automatics had the designation on the dials). Solid, and arguably undervalued watches. Looks like it may be a replacement crown.

    the crown do have the edox logo on it, but no idea if its a replacement. Forgotten that I had it, but gonna clean it up a little and check if I have spring bars that fit.

    If it runs ok, I have to decide either clean the acrylic or leave the scratches.

    Probably original, then, as these models did come with both larger and smaller crowns.

    You can polish out the scratches or, at worst, install a new crystal. It will definitely require a service before being run after all those years and the watchmaker would do it as part of that. If you want to have a cheap go at it yourself, toothpaste is the best thing (the Titanium oxide nanoparticles grind it down nicely). Here's a tutorial:
