    removing scratches on watches

    Hi, I'm Darak from LIV Watch, this is a "How To" video about removing scratches on watches using Cape Cod.
    Thanks for watching my video, if you enjoyed it.




    One thing I'll add about using Cape Cod or any other material or technique. Make sure to tape off around the crystal, especially the edges. If there is outside AR coating on the crystal it can be damaged easily when polishing .

      I love Cape Cod cloths. I agree with Mike though, tape off crystals and painted bezels as this will do some work on them. It is amazing what a few minutes with one of these can do to your watch though.

        Looks like they do a nice mild job for all those worried about going past the finish...

              If the scratch is minor you could try a sharpie, but I would not attempt using this stuff on plated watches.


              Q: What types of watches should not I NOT try to remove scratches from?
              A: Do not attempt to remove scratches from plated metals, they are generally identified by markings such as "plated" "electroplate" but sometimes may not be marked. White Gold is usually plated with Rhodium to enhance the appearance of white gold, therefore we do not recommend polishing white gold items except with non abrasive products such as the Cape Cod Cloth. Additionally metals that are painted, PVD (Ion Plated), bead blasted, gun metal finished, blued, or anodized should not be polished as these coatings and surface treatments will likely be compromised. I do not recommend using the kit on ceramic watches, another rarity are watches made from Tungsten (W), this metal is very hard and can only be effectively polished by a diamond abrasive and specialized polishing equipment.
