Sicura scratched face

Post11 Mar 2022, 11:19

Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to Polish light scratches out of a sicura chronoflash face?

I see videos on YouTube where it looks straight forward with sandpaper and poly watch.

Is the crystal on my sicura acrylic?
I’d hate to start this and then find that it’s not the right material and the technique doesn’t work

The Sicura Chronoflash has a acrylic (plastic) display cover. All depends on how deep the scratches are. If they are light use a 2000 sandpaper and polish off with Cerium Oxide glass polish.
