    I used these with my dremel. I believe easiest will be to just see what a local watchmaker will do.



    I didn’t go too crazy but polished this Seiko after seeing people having done it. The polish will fly so make sure to have glasses.

    I think if you are willing, then try to practice on a cheaper watch and see what happens then go for a mild polish. I had a bad ding on my Omega Aqua Terra and it bothered me so much. I tried to ignore it. I asked my sales guy at Tourneau and he had his watchmaker do it for me.

    I would absolutely try a Cape Cod cloth first. I've used this method to clean up polished cases many times and have never been disappointed. The deeper the scratch, the longer it will take to remove but there's less worry of damage, ruining case contour lines, etc. I use gloves in a well ventilated area. Though it smells of vanilla, it can give me a headache after a while.

    ^^Ditto...I got good results with a Cape Cod on an old watch of mine. Takes some time and elbow grease, but it's easy and cost effective. If money is no object, then of course return it to Stowa for the best result.

    Do you have a photo of the scratch?
