    Is it possible to remove scratches from the crystal?

    Hello,

    I recently bought a Go Green edition of a G off eBay. I am happy with it, however there are a few scratches on the crystal.

    I have read that polyWatch can possibly work.

    Does anyone have anything that does the trick?

    Thank you!

    Awesome, I sure hope so. I wish someone had before and after pictures of a DIY Polywatch job. That would be awesome.

    i don't think polywatch works on g-shocks (mineral crystals), only on plastic crystals like swatches. you'll probably need something like cerium oxide, and ALOT of time and effort

    Polywatch does work.
    It just takes a while.

    I'm positive a whole month of 24/7 polishing would be enough.
    Cheers!

    Yes, cerium oxide and emphasis on a lot of time. It is not a 5 minute job. It may not even be a 5 hour job. Depending on the depth of the scratches and the value of the model it may or may not be worth repairing.

    I have repaired a dozen or so crystals. It is not easy.

    I messed up on the model I was thinking of - I will go and stand in a corner for 4 minutes

    Do you use it with any special pads or just some micro fiber cloth ?
