OK, so I was walking around Home Depot earlier and accidentally swiped the crystal on one of my Parnis pilots against a clay pot. I didn't hit it hard, but it was obviously enough to leave two scratches. When I rub my fingers across them, I cannot feel anything, but they will NOT wipe away.

So... Is there ANY way to get them out, or will I have to have a new crystal put in if it brothers me too much? Can they be polished out? Something someone at the watch shop could take care of? Its not an expensive watch, but I REALLY like this watches looks and would like to get rid of the scratches if possible.

Below is a pic of the scratches. Theyre from the NE of the 10 to the South of the 20.

Thanks, Bob! That's something I can definitely do at the house.

Hi Viper, as Bob says use 3 micron diamond paste to get the scratch out. You may find that you need to "polish" the glass with 1 micron or 0.25 micron paste afterwards.
