    "Magic" scratch pen

    Hi Guys.....just wondering if you guys have tried out those "magic" pens from ebay to fix out scratches?? Does it work?? Please comment the good or bad?? I think the Titanium is really prone to scratches...and have done some googling and found most are easy to fix...especially with those "magic" pen. I have ordered some (I think a pack of 3 and refills)...only cost $50. Will it work on my Aquis Chrono especially the clasp since they are more prone to scratches?? (finally have 1 light scratch on the clasp after 2 weeks used).

    I assume you mean the fiber pens. Is so only use them on the clasp and brushed centre links NOT the polished outer links. The link below (if it works is to a post in the watchmaking forum of WUS that you might find of use. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f6/diy-...al-530065.html

    I have used them on my watches with good results. Just be sure not to get them near your eyes and be warned that you will probably get small fragments in your fingers. The fiberglass bristles break off as you use them and get everywhere. Make sure you only have about 5mm poking out the end of the pen. Also you should be able to get them a lot cheaper then $50. Look up a place called RS components, they should have a Sydney branch. You can get the pens and the refills there. They are often used for cleaning circuit boards.

    Just wondering if you got my replies. I sent information on catalog numbers and prices but I'm not sure it got through.

    I agree with all the above. I got one at Jaycar (they have ......s in Sydney) for about $12. It was called a corrosion buster pen. They work OK but beware of the little fibre fragments. Rob

    If this is what I think it is... I have used them in my electronics service work for years. They were primarily used for cleaning up electrical corrosion on components and work very well for that. I never thought to use one for buffing up scratches. Might have to give that shot! And if I remember correctly, I used to buy them for like $5 ea.
