Scuff on bezel

Post by maniac_mike »

So i've owned a 2nd generation C60 Trident Pro 600 for about 4 years and have worn it everyday, love the watch.

I noticed a week ago that there was what looked to be a scratch on the bezel. Not a huge deal, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how it got there. It wasn't until yesterday when I saw 3 more appear that I realized what was happening. I wear a "titanium" wedding band that I got for 13$ off Amazon and when I wash my watch under the sink with soap, my ring was scuffing the bezel with its cheap silver color rubbing off onto it.

My question is, how should I go about removing this type of scuffing?

Mk2 Trident so that should be a ceramic bezel. A pencil rubber/eraser should remove most marks. I’d suggest you try that first.

Rubber eraser, washing up cloth, rub it with a finger, or just leave it and it will likely wear off on it's own in a week or two.

Does your 'titanium' ring make your finger black?
There's always time for one more.

I knew there was a really good reason why everyone should wear their watch on their left wrist. This is it.
