Today, the plexi on my 449 took a hit from a car door window.

See that sweeping arc from 6 to 3? Yeah, pretty bad. Rough to the touch in fact.


And after a few minutes with PolyWatch...GONE!


Yes, this may not have happened with sapphire, but then again...maybe not. A scratch on sapphire and you’re likely hosed, or in for a more involved process, but plexi is sexy again. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ’™

Scratches are why plexi > sapphire. Received my two-digit 372 just days after the model released and haven't polished it once and never will, I'll be an 80 year old man cursing at my watch "What damn time is it, this piece of crap watch, I can't even see the hands any longer!!!!"



Gorgeous 449, I want one of those so much.

Though I wonder if Polywatch has its limits at some point. Of course, then we have Micah's approach

Did a pretty good job on surface scuffs but then used a product bought at a HD bike store for restoring windshields. That really did it for the deep gouges. Amazed and brand new again. Micah will go blind for many reasons but more so for trying to tell the time. I’ll give him a ride on the back of my bike.

Look at the damage between 8 and 10.

Toothpaste was Arm and Hammer. Who else?
