Scratch!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I've been enjoying my Seiko Presage as a regular wear for some time now and really love the contrasting brush/high polish of the bracelet and case. However I've just noticed a scratch on the polished surface that faces me most! (Hope the picture shows it).. Can anyone recommend a product and maybe has experience of using, that may help?? Or would I risk the high shine and should I just live with it? 

Doesn't seem deep as I can't feel it with my finger nail. Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

Autosol metal polish would probably get it out, but make sure you don't stray onto the brushed parts

If it's so shallow that you can't feel it with your nail, then as Davey says, try Autosol. As an extra precaution, I would also put some masking tape over the adjacent brushed areas.

Thanks chaps, I'll get some of that and give it a go.

I may trial it on a surplus cheap bracelet as I'm nervous of the effect on the shine. Will post the results.

:thumbsup:

That scratch looks more like a graze than a deep line, dear @Autonomous, and if that is the case it should be possible to polish it out in the manner suggested by my esteemed colleagues above. Wear on watches is a mixed blessing - while the watch is in that "mint" phase of its life, any scratch seems dreadful, but as a watch ages with wear, scratches can become an integral part of its history and to then remove all signs of wear can be a travesty.:)

I think you could be right sir, as I haven't the slightest idea how it happened. I would normally accept such marks as 'part of life' in a watch that is regularly worn but as you say, I still seem to be in a honeymoon period with this one! And it does seem to glare at me every time I look down at it :laugh: I'll see if I can get it out but I won't be going nuts about it.
