    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...

    Hi, Has anyone tried one of the ceramic clear coatings on their watch? I tried it today on a few of my watches and metal bands. It went on pretty easily and is not really noticeable. The coating I used was from amazon and has a hardness of 9H. Just hope to slow down the scratches a bit. Here is...

    hey ho, so I've been looking around trying to find some info but I still don't think I have all the answers I need so I thought I'd see what you all had to say. 1) how can I determine if my AR coating is on the inside or outside of my crystal? 2) if it's on the outside and has minor scratches...

    Hi all, After almost a year with my Omega Speedmaster Professionally watch, getting a few minor scratches on the polished upper 4 sides. I have some Cape Cod polishing cloths for other items, and wondered if it's a good idea to use them to get rid of these marks? The marks are on the polished...

    I am not one of these people that's adverse to watch scratches. I actually welcome them, to a degree. But this seems ridiculous and avoidable. It seems that where the clasp comes down over the bracelet, may be too tight despite no sharp surfaces. The result? Scratches by way of simply raising...

    I recently got a new watch. The watch is a Citizen Grand Classic. I absolutely love it! Truth be told, it is the most expensive watch I have bought thus far and I very much want to keep it in good shape. I have a few questions, and though I realize they may be a bit obsessive, I would love...

    Hey guys. Just wanted to know if anyone has an "at home" solution to getting surface scratches that are inevitable out of an oyster bracelet without having to get the watch refinished. I literally put on my Sub for the second time since it bought it and get the smallest of scratches in the...

    So this happened this past weekend. Not that I care to get it fixed– you may have seen my related post here: https://www.watchuseek.com/f2/just-flesh-er-case-wound-thoughts-case-scratches-dents-2376978.html#post20241634 – but the incident has peaked my curiosity as to whether it is possible to...

    We’ve all been there, that pool party or social gathering where you are having a good time, hanging out with friends, listening to some 90s hit in favor of the latest chart topper mind control propaganda, then someone asks if would you like another pina colada? Sure, one more can’t hurt, right...

    Curious how you guys clean and maintain your bracelets and cases? Also, I have a SS bracelet for a PO XL that is a little scuffed and scratch. Pretty minor but annoying nonetheless. Any recommendations for the best way to restore it? Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise!

    Hi all, Long time lurker, first time poster here. I really enjoyed reading all the great things you all have to say on this wonderful forum! I recently purchased two Frederique Constant automatic watches, one Classics and the other Persuasion Heartbeat, from an online grey-market seller. The...

    Hi Everybody! I really like the new Planet Ocean and Speedmaster in Titanium but I don't know if it is true that titanium scratches a lot easier than steel. Does anybody who owns a titanium Omega had this kind of problem? Thank you

    Hello all, Im new, and in a panic. I recently bought my first high end watch. I bought a 3500$ all ceramic Rado, with sapphire glass. I orginally wanted to wear it everyday but I may be changing my mind on this. The problem is, they told me its really resistant to scratches being high tech...

    I constantly read about how the exterior AR coating shows smudges, can get surface aberrations, and generally picks up more fingerprints than the FBI. I have 6 watches without an exterior AR coating, and I can't say that I have readability or reflection problems with them. Some in this forum...

    Hey All, Forgive me if this is an ancient conversation, but I was down in the NYC Omega Boutique this weekend talking to a lovely salesperson about the Speedmaster Pros they have down there. I was wondering what everyone's experience and/or opinion is between the Sapphire Crystal and the...

    This is about my futile attempts to restore a mirror finish and is looking for feedback from those who think they know how to. Alright, we all love our watches. And scratches can be a real thorn in the eye. We all know that a good watchmaker can restore the watch to like new finish. But it...

    Hey everyone, I'm brand new here and admittedly I know almost zilch about watches. I need some advice with regards to the durability of the IP/PVD finish on watches. Here's the deal... I fell in love with the Citizen Nighthawk, but I'm torn between the ion-plated black version (BJ7005) or the...
