Works well on acrylic crystals. Not on sapphire (too hard). Be careful you don’t contact the surrounding case. ..... taping it off helps. But yes it’s pretty good. Takes patience if the scratches are extensive.

I am trying to remove a scratch on a Skagen watch.

I wonder what the crystal is made out of?

My guess is mineral crystal?

Thanks

I just ordered that from Amazon to polish the scratched acrylic crystal on my 1966 Navitimer:

I got the Polywatch scratch remover and it seems to have done a great job on my 1966 Navitimer. The 'before' image is above, below is the 'after'.

I probably polished the crystal 4 or 5 times, placing the polishing cloth on my leg for a soft surface to push against, put a medium amount of polish on the crystal, and then turned it face down and with pressure against my leg, polished the watch using a circular motion. Once or twice in between, I'd spray on some eyeglass cleaner to clear off the polish, and than again as the last pass. I'm pretty happy with the results, although I might try again to polish out a few of the larger scratches.

This worked well on a Skagen watch and a Tag Heuer!

Highly recommended.
