    Help needed!

    Paint thinner?

    On a serious note those eye glass cleaning pads work wonders.

    Is it over or under the crystal? If it's under, did you get the watch wet or put it somewhere super humid? If it's over, just use a damp cloth and wipe it clean.

    I was use warm water and some dawn dish soap. Use a small brush and gently clean the entire watch. Then dry with a microfiber towel.

    Wait, why did you do that?


    Either the steam from the hot water got into the watch, OR the dish soap has left stains on the crystal, try damping a cloth and wipe your crystal and see if it clears up.

    i think it's over the crystal. I have tried to clean it with damp cloth but its still the same.

    looks like it was exposed to a chemical. You can take it to a MB Boutique and have the crystal replaced but it will probably cost several hundred dollars. Alternately you might look up ways to remove teh anti reflective coating completely. The sapphire crystal will be intact under that damaged coating.

    so what you mean is that the ar coating got damaged by the chemical? will removing it give a clearer sight to the dial?
