Makine has “long history” and is based in true story

We have to go back to the 60´s. It was the unstable time when my father went to do military service in Turkish Cypriot army. After compulsory military service, my father served army between 1964-1970. Because of unstable situation in Cyprus in the late 60´s, there were also many of Finnish UN (United Nation) soldiers to keep peace in Cyprus. Father of mine get familier with these helpful and friendly Finnish soldiers. They gave spark to my father to move away from Cyprus to Finland.

Letter from President office of Finland from 1973.

1970 my father went to study Istanbul University. His main subject was “History of England”. Because of student disorter in Istanbul University in early 70´s, my father had to end studying. After this, my father dicided to move Finland in 1972. My parents met in 1973 and are still together in these days.

Our family has lived bilingual environment. Our family has followed to live decent life. Our values are family-orientation, kindness, respect others and encourage to follow your dreams.

I have always been active person and intrested in technical things. I have also studied mechanical engineering 4 years in Helsinki, Finland. Based to my personal background and legacy and perseverance of my father, I have chosen to take Makine to my company´s name. “Makine” is Turkish word and means “machine”.

I think we all love machines (Makineler). Airplanes, cars, motorbikes and watches, they all have heart of machine. The heart of Makine!

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.

Before polishing
Slight scratches on crystal

2. Apply Polywatch to the watch crystal. 

Add Polywatch to the 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.

Rubbing Polywatch to the crystal

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.
