    How to remove watch Anti Reflective coating - help / suggestions?

    Well,the time has come and the AR coating is wearing off.

    Thusfar I have tried alcohol, cape cod cloth, ammonia window cleaner, and my localjeweler has also tried a buffing wheel with polish but the stubborn AR is stillblotchy, there, and simply refuses to completely come off! ARGH…..What other options are there? Polywatch? Anything else worth trying?

    Surely there is something that will get the remaining stuff off withoutdamaging the bezel or crystal!!!


    Thanks:)

    Polywatch may do it so I’d give it a go but if that doesn’t do the trick a bit of very fine diamond paste may be called for. Make sure you mask the area off that you don’t want to touch.

    I have the same problem as you with a watch I got off eBay. I've heard Brasso works (mixed results) it's cheap and easily available, I'm going to Home Depot later today to pick some up.
