Even if you take all the necessary care to keep your watch protected, well maintained and gleaming, no one is free from minor accidents that can wipe the marker glass. In fact, the covering can be scratched by the simple daily use, from the constant rubbing against your clothes, slight touches on pieces, material or work table or even by bumps on other objects. There are several measures to remove these scratches from the glass of your watch , some homemade, others more professional. Would you like to know the most efficient techniques?
Even today’s most sophisticated timepieces often use toppings made from hardened glass or acrylic plastic. Because these materials are more flexible and less hard, they are more exposed to scratches and scratches with ease. And precisely because of this malleability, these plastic and glass materials respond well to the use of home-made products to remove abrasions on the lid. And the best known is the white toothpaste, the most basic. These creams usually work because they have abrasive ingredients, such as titanium and fluorite, in slight concentration in their composition.
The cream should be placed on a clean cloth, which will be passed over the dry clock. The cap should be rubbed in a circular motion with light pressure. When the cream is dry, remove the toothpaste and evaluate. Make extra applications if you find it necessary. Use a brush to remove the cream that has been trapped in the cavities and crevices of the watch, carefully.
Use a polishing machine
When the watch cover is made of crystal, sapphire or other more delicate materials, you will have to carry the watch to be treated in watchmaking or specialized houses. The skilled professional will use a polishing paste in the affected area and position the watch against a felt disc, making medium pressure in order to remove the scratches from the rotations of the piece.
Use special abrasive products
There are also on the market special substances that bring polymers or other abrasive ingredients into the composition and which are marketed as scratch strip, multipurpose use, or scratch removers. Usually, they are applied with the aid of flannels, also making circular movements on the scratched region, or with the good use of a piece of steel straw. Stains and scratches come out, generating a result very close to the professional polishing of watchmaking.
Use product for polishing metals
Plastic, acrylic or hardened glass displays can still work well with another effective technique, using a metal polisher, easily found and purchased in supermarkets. First, sand the entire surface of the roof with a regular sandpaper, from those bought at building materials stores, making light pressure. Buy a fine sandpaper, no. 400 or higher, suitable for polishing. Then apply a few drops of the product on the glass of the watch and rub with a flannel in circular movement. The glass will be free of scratches within minutes.
If your watch has some scratches because of the use or by having it beaten in some place, you can easily make it look beautiful and elegant again with these methods, as if it were brand new! Have you used any of these techniques?
