Last night I dropped my Herc 182 (which is fairly hefty) on my Ticino big pilot from a distance of about 4 inches.
The result was disturbing to me. The Ticino has an odd ding or scratch now, and it's fairly big.
It looks as though the grain on the brushed stainless steel just changed direction where the Herc hit it... (see photos below).
The Herc suffered no damage at all. I don't know what part of the Herc hit the Ticino. It wasn't the crown, because it was opposite the Ticino when it happened.
Anyway, I know the Ticino Big Pilot is an inexpensive watch (I bid for it on ebay and got it for $115), but I really like it alot. It's been good to me.
My question is: Is there any remedy to the damage seen in the photos that does not cost more than the watch itself? For instance could the scratch be "brushed" out?
You'll have to forgive my ignorance on the matter, I know nothing about such things.
Any help would be much appreciated.
