Use jewelers rouge, (a paste with very fine abrasive particles) and using a small amount on a piece of very fine cloth, rub gently in a circular pattern to buff out the scratches. You can find the rouge at a hardware store that sells Dremel tools and accessories.

How can i repair scratches on a plastic caravan window


Plastic polish comes in a variety of grits to help buff out scratches in a wide variety of plastics. Novus is a popular brand; their stuff comes in 3 grades: #1 for very fine scratches, #2 for moderate scratches, and #3 for deep / rugged scratches. I generally use #2 polish; #3 polish leaves smaller scratches behind that must be buffed out using #2 polish. Auto repair shops also sell plastic polishes. You might also be able to use automotive rubbing compound, if you don't have access to plastic polish. In a pinch, you can also use traditional white toothpaste, as it contains mild grit (that's how your teeth get polished, after all). Note that toothpaste may also leave behind small scratches.

In terms of hardware, some people use a rotary buffer (like you'd use with car wax) to apply the polishing compound. I have tended to leave swirl marks when I use one. Some people use a Dremel rotary tool, but the super-fast rotational speed can melt/burn the plastic if you apply too much pressure. I prefer to use a soft, all-cotton cloth (an old washcloth or tube sock turned inside out works well), with a dab of polish on it. For straight line linear scratches, I generally run the polish along the scratch to lift out any paint, etc, and to soften the walls of the scratch. This alone usually makes the scratch a lot less visible. However, to finish the buffing, it's good to polish in a circular motion to feather the areas immediately surrounding the scratch into the scratch area.

Some plastics are tougher to polish than others. Super-hardened plastics and some polycarbonates will not clear up using these methods. Most, however, will at least look better after you've done a bit of polishing, even if the scratches don't completely disappear.

Watch lens scratches... Solutions to repairing?


If you have a plastic crystal, you can use plastic polish (I like Novus #2, myself) to buff out small scratches. In a pinch, white toothpaste (not the gel kind) contains gentle grit and also will buff out some imperfections in a plastic watch crystal. Toothpaste is harsher than plastic polish, however, and may remove deeper scratches at the cost of creating some additional fine scratches.
If your watch crystal is made of mineral glass, scratches cannot be easily polished out. In that case, your best solution would be to take it to a jeweler or watch repair facility to have the crystal replaced. Depending on the style of the watch, replacing a crystal can be as little as $15--or run to well over $100 for some diver's watches. If you're not comfortable with the estimate, get another one elsewhere. Crystal replacement is a high profit margin job for many jewelers. Not everyone is equally greedy.

The crystal is scratched, can I fix that myself?


Thanks for contacting FIxYa.
  • Use a jeweler's loupe to identify all scratches on the watch crystal. You do not have to remove the watch crystal from the watch.
  • Use a polishing cloth to remove dirt, grit, lint or any debris on the watch crystal. Squeeze a small amount of standard toothpaste with abrasive properties onto the watch crystal. Gently brush the toothpaste into the crystal for five minutes. Wipe clean the watch crystal. and repeat another five minutes.
  • Use the jeweler's loupe to inspect your progress. Repeat application if necessary. Apply Brasso polish once the watch crystal is wiped clean. This will polish the crystal to a clear, bright shine.
  • Apply Autosol or Polywatch to the watch crystal in the same manner as toothpaste if you prefer to use a product specifically designed for watch crystals. These products will provide the same results as toothpaste. You may also apply Cerium Oxide, a glass scratch remover used specifically in the window manufacturing industry.
  • Apply a small amount of 3-micron diamond paste using your finger or a Kleenex if removing scratches from a sapphire crystal. Rub the paste in for about five minutes. Remove paste with cloth. Buff the sapphire crystal with one-quarter micron buffing diamond paste for finishing.
  • Use a toothpick to remove excess polish and gunk that may accumulate between the crystal and the bezel that secures the crystal in place. Gently work the toothpick around the diameter of the bezel. Wipe the bezel clean with a cloth.
  • Buff the watch crystal with a polishing cloth.

  • OR..take to a local jeweler/watchmaker.
    Best regards. Jewel

    How do i remove face of interchangeable watch?


    This is called BEZEL you want to lift off. Take watch case opener (or just a pocket knife), insert the blade between case and bezel, then carefully pry up bit by bit, going all around the case. Make sure you are pressing blade in while prying up the bezel. This will not let knife to slip and scratch the watch. Rate me, plz.

    Saphire replacement and polish


    Well if its glass you cant polish out the scratches! If that is a real Cartier watch then you need to send back to Cartier for that job. You can take it to an authorized retailer but they are going to mark the cost WAY up!!!!

    My luminox watch needs a new bezel


    You'll need a watchmaker to fit the new bezel. If it is just scratched I wouldn't recommend fixing it. You may pay 50$ for the new bezel and a pressure check; that may not be economical.

    Need new bezel


    Try parsecent.com, you can get a replacement bezel there...

    and you are right, you are basically buying a new watch as this model is made of plastic and cannot be 'polished'. Refurbishing it means that it will look new and everything on the outside would have to be replaced...good luck :)

    Hi, there are some whitish scratch marks on my DKNY watch. What can I do to remove it?


    Bring it to watchmaker.
    If you want to do it yourself, you will need a polishing maschine, few different polishing compounds and ultrasonic cleaning maschine.
    Prior to polishing watch movement must be taken out, so, you will still need the watchmaker.
