I picked up a brand new Speedmaster Professional 3570.50 (sn 777721xx) a few weeks ago from an AD and have been loving it ever since. During my first day back to work with it (airline pilot), I reached behind my seat for the logbook and felt my watch touch the back of the seat... two deep scratches to the face of the hesalite crystal. I was disappointed to say the least. On to the WUS forum and found a very helpful and descriptive post by WUS member 'jean-michel' on how to resolve this issue. I found polyWatch in Portland OR and with about 7 minutes of polishing, the two fairly deep scratches were taken right out. Go slow and be patient. I couldn't believe the difference; my watch looks brand new again. I couldn't be more happy with the results and would suggest it to anybody looking to clean up their hesalite crystal.
I wish I had before and after pictures!
Little did I know that polyWatch actually comes with a polishing cloth in the package - would have saved me a trip around town for microfiber and 1000 grit sandpaper that I didn't need either of... for next time!
Thought I'd share!

First time Omega owner and my first high end watch. I have had many other mid and lower end watches, but nothing like this. I got my 3750.50 off the bay from a reputable dealer it came in the mail on Monday, but it needed extra links to fit my 7.5" wrist. I had to wait till Thursday for the extra links for my 1998/840 bracelet to come in from Ofrei. So it's now finally on my wrist. It's everything I'd hoped it would be- a classic piece of history I can wear. There's a 1/8th scratch at 12 that I knew about when I bought the watch, but it's nothing a little pollywatch can't fix. Here's my first wrist shot with it.
I added another speedmaster into the collection today. The ST145.022 , while there is hardly any difference from the 3570.50, I feel in love with that aged tritium dial.
