  1. Oris Aquis Scratches on the Crystal

    Oris
    Hey everyone, I recently acquired this Oris Aquis, it's been purchased in June 2018 and is still covered under warranty. I really love this watch. However, one problem I've noticed is that under direct sunlight (or other very strong light sources I suppose) there are hundreds of very small...
  2. FINE MICRO-SRATCHES ON GOLD LINKS OF SUB BRACELET

    Rolex & Tudor
    Hello Everyone: I'm the proud owner of a Two-Tone Rolex Submariner. I've had the watch for a few months now. Before I begin, I wanted to say that I do try and wear my Rolex proudly, not worrying about scratches, and I do realize that part of the beauty of owning this watch is the personal...
  3. Micro scratches on AR coating... worth removing? Do most people care?

    Omega
    My LMTi Planet Ocean GMT has a couple minor permanent smudges in the AR coating. It's not that noticeable unless you have it at the right angle. Does anyone else have this issue? Is it worth removing the AR coating? I haven't decided if it bugs me enough to actually do something about it. It...
  4. Too Scratched?

    Public Forum
    Just got my Multifort Auto back from the jeweler. I missed it while it was away (for 2 and a half months to replace the crystal). I wear it to work and sit behind a computer for most of the day. When I'm not at my desk I'm down on a production floor moving pallets and shipping things. I love...
  5. Abused Watches

    Public Forum
    This is my first watch, bought when I was around 24 years old. I didn't anything about watches, then. I just bought it because it was beautiful. I was a borderline alcoholic for about a decade. I'll never remember what this poor piece has seen. It's still tickin', though. I don't drink very...
  6. What it takes to scratch a Omega sapphire screen?

    Omega
    Maybe I am a little paranoic about scratching my watches, but they have costed me a pretty penny and although they are intended to be used everyday I don't like to abuse them. For the cases and bracelets I have not much concern as they scratch basically just by looking at them long enough ;)...
  7. Put a big scratch into my watch, need suggestions for repair

    Steinhart
    This morning, I fell and scratched my steinhart Ocean 1 Vintage Red (slipped on some slick concrete stairs). So, I've pretty much decided that the attacked by an angle grinder look is a bit too much 'character' for me. I know I want to replace the bezel and try and restore the coin edge around...

    Orient

Today i wake up with a big scratch in the middle and 6-7 small ones. Am i doing something wrong or should i contact the seller/guarantee, because...
  9. Question about cleaning and scratches.

    Public Forum
    Hi, I've just received a new Ticino watch, 47mm. After 2 days of wearing, I must say I am impressed because time keeping is 0sec/day, better than all my watches except my Citizen radio controlled which does the same. :) The sapphire is domed and it has AR only on the internal side. But today I...
  10. Fine scratch on Portofino Chronograph watch dial...

    IWC
    Hello. I just got my IWC Portofino two weeks ago and I realized there was a fine scratch on the watch dial. Although it is hard to see under direct sun light, it is quite noticeable when I pay attention to the scratch. Should I take it back to the IWC shop and demand it to be fixed? Or is this a...
  11. Hello! New PO with mark on case already! I guess I just deal with it?!

    Omega
    Hello all, first post here after just purchasing an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 co-axial chronograph 45.5mm :-) Delighted with it although I have a small mark on the polished area of the stainless steel case already :-(. I guess that is gonna happen and I just have to live with it. What do...
  12. Bought watch brand new, found scratch/chip on the bottom lug...sell or keep?

    Omega
    Hey guys, I finally bought my speedy 3570 a month ago as a birthday present to myself! Went to the diamond district and was about to get a really good price for it. Brand new box, papers, and everything. A few days after (after getting it sized at the boutique) I wore it for the first time and...
  13. Your bezel scratches

    Public Forum
    I was looking at my two most frequently worn watches and noticed the minor bezel scratches were in roughly the same place on each watch... I must be doing something consistently wrong I thought... maybe I've been walking through doorways wrong all these years and can't help hitting the watch on...
  14. Quick question regarding AR coating- repair/ replacement

    TAG Heuer
    I'm currently looking a picking up a full size Kirium for what I find to be a good deal. Only issue is there appears to be a number of small surface scratches in the AR coating. Can this be repaired or replaced? Any idea hom much i should budget for this? Thanks in advance, Jeff
  15. DW-5030C-1JR incoming, a couple of questions

    Casio G-Shock
    I already have a GW-5000-1JF, with a scratch on the crystal (I wish Casio would use sapphire crystal on their "high-end" models, I would even pay good money to retrofit one!), so I'm wondering if it's possible to change the crystal on the square Casios as I expect that the same will eventually...
  16. Is it possible to remove scratches from the crystal?

    Casio G-Shock
    Hello, I recently bought a Go Green edition of a G off eBay. I am happy with it, however there are a few scratches on the crystal. I have read that polyWatch can possibly work. Does anyone have anything that does the trick? Thank you!
  17. How to know whether a scratched is dirt or a simple scratch

    Seiko
    Actually a small scratch is seen behind the seiko label. I want to find whether some dirt is inside the new seiko 5 watch or i have scratched the crystal. Any advice also on how to get rid of it and also i am wondering that if the scratch has been made by my fingernail or something else because...
  18. Is my Moonwatch secondhand bent...or am I going mad?

    Omega
    Hello, My first posting as a WatchUSeek-er…. After years of gazing though jeweller windows, and months of to and fro-ing over hesalite or sapphire (finally decided it had to be the original hesalite and now cant believe I was in doubt - if anyone else is having the same struggle, you won't...
  19. Desk Divers Unite! How do you deal with it?

    Public Forum
    Hello all, As my collection grows, I notice the watches I wear at work are getting scuffed up on the bottom of the bracelet, some call this desk diving. I have read some threads saying there’s no solution to this, only corrective actions (buffing with scotch bright). I do not like this and...
