How To Remove Scratches From Acrylic Watch Crystal

Friday, February 8, 2013
Timex acrylic watch crystal polished to remove scratches
Acrylic crystals are used for lower priced watches. They are cheaper than sapphire and mineral crystals and don't break as easily because they are softer. This softness also makes acrylic scratch easier. Over the years acrylic watch glass can develop scratches but it's cheap and easy to restore the acrylic to an almost new state with a little bit of work.

I stole a watch from my mom. Don't worry, it's not because I'm  a meth-head. Using my watch repair kit was fun so I was looking for other watches that I could fix. I knew she had some old watches that had issues.

I ran across this vintage Timex women's manual wind watch. It has a stainless steel back, chrome finished case and a nice silver dial with arabic numerals and a date window.

SE JT6226 19 Piece Watch Repair Tool Set
After deciding to return to wearing wristwatches more frequently I realized I had to replace some batteries and leather bands as well as adjust the stainless still watch band on the new diver watch I purchased.

Since I like to do things myself I thought I'd purchase some watch tools. There are many affordable watch repair tool kits available. I decided on the SE JT6226 19-Piece Watch Tool Kit because it was cheap, it came with all the tools I think I will need and it includes a hard case to store everything, as well as a fairly large assortment of spring bars.

The one major item lacking in the watch tool kit are instructions. Along with my review I'm going to include instructions on how you'd use the tools that come in the SE JT6226 Watch Tool Kit. These watch tools are also available individually as well as in similar kits.

A man should wear a watch. Over the past few years I forgot this but since I started exercising more and occasionally wearing my heart rate monitor watch I remembered how convenient it was to wear a watch rather than to pull out my phone. So I started getting my watches back in  working order, cleaning them and replacing batteries. While I was looking for a watch repair tool kit I happened upon a great deal on this Stuhrling Original Men's Aquadiver Regatta Champion Professional Diver Watch and decided to pick it up.

This post will be a review of the Stuhrling Original Aquadiver Regatta Champion watch with a black dial and bezel.
