    The Moonwatch Professional has a Hesalite crystal.important because it didnt shatter if broken in space. Other Speedys do have sapphire and I believe the newest model of the Moonwatch can also be had with sapphire also.

    Yep, I'm betting less than two minutes.

    That, too. A replacement crystal used to be around $50 or less from Omega.

    Polywatch removes scrathes from acyrilic (organic,plastic) crystals not mineral or sapphire ones.

    Wear it with pride. It’s a badge of watch wearing honor.

    If you are like me, you won't be able to get peace of mind till you change the glass. No amount of buffing will erase the knowledge that it's "not the same" from your mind. :( Hopefully it wont be very expensive considering its not sapphire.

    Do not be afraid to tape off the bezel insert and use some 2500 - 3000 grit wet sand paper. You can pick this stuff up at your local auto store. 3M makes 3000 and 5000 grit for sanding clear coat finishes on cars and it has a spong type texture to it. It is about 1-2mm thick. Scuff it starting with 3000 and then go 5000. The whole crystal will look hazy when done. Follow with Polywatch on a wet cotton ball or blue shop towel and it will look like new. if you cannot get to the auto store pick up one of those multi sided nail file and buffing cubes at your local CVS drug. Do not use the coarse side. Wet it and start with the final buff side and lightly go over the entire top surface of the crystal and then use Polywatch. It will look like new. I have restored dozens of 45 -50 year old vintage seiko acrylic crystals and you would be amazed at before and after. The worst that can happen is you have to by a new acrylic crystal for your Speedy. Good luck with it.

    Or just use toothpaste as others have suggested. Hirsch makes great alligator straps if you haven't bought one yet.
