Good to see the paste works. If I scratch my acryllic I intend to try toothpaste. :shock:

Well done Jag!

I use Polywatch myself. Although pricey, it is not messy and works fairly quickly.

Toothpaste does work as well...I just found it took longer and the added time for cleanup wasn't worth it in my case.

That is the great thing about acrylic - easy to remove scratches.

I have not had to use Polywatch since this chap attempted to leave my lap, and the train, through the window he is looking out of... little b****r scratched my PRS50B as I stopped him leaping into the devon countryside.

Tried some toothpaste on the acrylic crystal on my Rolex Oysterdate yesterday and amazed with the result - came up like new with no discernable swirling.... and it now has the ring of confidence!
