    Is it possible to remove the scuff on the bezle?

    Managed to get a scuff on the bezle yesterday (near the 11 o'clock marker).
    Is there any possibility to remove it?

    That watch is ruined. There is no way to fix it. Send it to me for disposal.

    Only way is to buff it out, aka take metal off until its at the scuff mark. Honestly, it's not worth it. You'll forget about it in a few weeks. Carry on, add more scratches and scuffs, and enjoy it.

    How noticeable is it when not magnified a thousand million times??

    In theory you could buff it out but in all honesty I’d live with it.

    You're going to get more. If you buff out each scuff or scratch as it happens, your bezel will be a shapeless mess within a couple of years. Get it all done at once with the regular polishing when you service it.

    Yes, it is possible to repair that. And the next one. And the next one. And the next one...

    Honestly, they make abrasive clothes / sandpaper, and pens that can be used to buff those kinds of scratches and dings out. I've even used fingernail buffing boards to repair a bezel scratch. If you aren't very careful, it's often easier to create more damage than you're trying to repair.

    To me, a “life scar” gives the Watch more character. If you wore the Watch many times and came to me and said that you want me to have this Watch because it is special to you and so, am I, It would mean more looking like something you did use a lot! Not a safe queen. If just to have and resale, then buff it out at service. Vance.
