    Nail polish removal contains acetone, which is a solvent.
    I had the same blue crap on the caseback of a Seiko OM I bought. Acetone dissolved it right away. I was careful not to slop it on as acetone will severely damage the seals. I applied it with a Q-tip.

    Yes, I agree - acetone eats away at lubricants, which is why it's sometimes used in machine shops (at least in all the ones my dad worked in) for cleaning oil/grease/grime off of metals. It can also affect some types of sealing materials, such as o-rings using natural rubber instead of synthetics. I would be very cautious any time acetone is used near the caseback or any other place where seals might come in contact with it (crown/stem, pushers, etc.).

    Nice watch.

    For anyone else faced with the problem of removing sticky protective film from watcn cases, use a product called "De-Solv-It".

    Removes stubborn stick film and residue very easily.

    Made from citrus juice (Orange and Lemon) and is non-toxic.

    Cheers

    I like to use a quick solvent. I suggested polish remover because its found in the house when women are present. now if your single and have nail polish remover in your home.............. well I hope the color of your toenails matches you eyeliner best stuff to use though thats fast acting and evaporates in an instant and doesn't affect seals or plastic crystals is naptha, a wood cleaner and degreaser.
