    Reviving my old watch

    Hey Guys,

    While visiting my parents house i found my old watch which i had since the year 2000, the watch was dead for sure and the resin band was rotten so i removed it and gave the watch a bath, now i was thinking of reviving that watch but i found a little scratch on the crystal, does any one know method to clean that little scratch ?

    I found these by plugging "site: forums.watchuseek.com/f17 scratch" into Google -- you might also try replacing "scratch" in that line with "polish."

    The REALLY short answer is that "yes, you can polish that scratch out of the crystal, but it's going to take a lot of time and a little bit of effort, along with varying amounts of money depending on what kind(s) of polishing agents you decide to buy."

    Mineral crystals are harder to scratch in the first place because they're so tough...unfortunately, that toughness is what makes them so much harder to polish when they DO get scratched.

    I've been looking at a couple of small scratches in two of my watches and wondering if I really want to invest the time and effort, especially as I've never tried it before.

    Scratch removal is a labour of love & it does take time. If they are minor surface scuffs, it's not too bad. The deeper the scratch, the longer the polish. The hardest part is once you start, you are committed. Be sure that you can't live with the scratch before you start.

    Exactly. This is why I have not done any polishing yet.
