To remove scratches from your watch is pretty easy task. You do not have to be a watchmaker or you do not need any special tools for scratch removal of your acrylic watch crystal. You just need 5-10 minutes of your time, a little bit focusing and tender loving care to polishing crystal.

So what do you need then to accomplish polishing task? All necessary “tools” are shown in main picture. You just need to purchase Polywatch, cleaning and/or polishing cloth and the watch of course. We used different cloth to rubbing Polywatch to crystal and wiping off.

Here is the scratch removal procedure explained and illustrated step by step:

1. Check where scratches are located. We had bigger scratched in the middle Of Nivada watch crystal and slight scratches around crystal.

2. Apply Polywatch to the watch crystal.

3. Use a piece of cotton wool and polish the scratched areas for 2-3 minutes with great pressure at a right angle to the scratches. Deep scratches need to be treated more than once.

4.Finally, remove any remaining Polywatch with a cloth.

After polishing

How Polywatch works:

  • The plastic glass is very slightly dissolved and ground down by tiny abrasive particles
  • The edges of the scratch marks are then smoothed off
  • The cracks filled in with some of the original plastic from the watch crystal

Now it is your time to try watch crystal polishing! This is easy way to get your acrylic crystal to the original condition. After polishing crystal looks like new. Note that Polywatch is working only for acrylic (plastic) crystals. It is not working for mineral and sapphire crystals!

You can find Polywatch from our online store.

You might heard commonly used terminology like ”Swiss Made”, ”Swiss Movement” and ”Swiss Parts”. You can see often ”Swiss Made” and sometimes  ”Swiss Movement” in your watch dial. These terms can be a little bit confusing and you might have been thinking proper meaning of those. Timemachine.fi explains background of these terms so after reading this post, you will be even more clever!

There has been new regulation put into place in on 1.1.2017 what qualifies ”Swiss Made” watch. New regulation is more strict than before and it is regulated by Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (FH). Regulation aim is to improve protection of ”Swiss Made” label and watch manufacturing in Switzerland. This way low-cost watch brands have harder to get ”Swiss Made” label into watch dial. Previous regulations are downloadable from Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry homepage: http://www.fhs.swiss/eng/swissmade.html

Explanation of Swiss Made, Swiss Movement and Swiss Parts by NEW regulation:

“Swiss Parts” Movement

A watch is a “Swiss Parts” if the movement is not assembled in Switzerland, but still consist Swiss made components. Normally these types of watches are assembled in Asia or USA. There is no example of “Swiss Parts” seeing in dial. There is no marking on the watch dial like those of “Swiss Made” and “Swiss Movement” watches. Generally when buying a watch made with “Swiss Parts” you will only see this detail in the watch description.
