I had a deep scrach on the bezel, wear and tear marks on different parts of the bezel and clasp and a 2mm scratch on the crystal sapphire face I could feel with my finger.
I was told by 2 different places - Ernest Jones jewelers where I bought the watch from and a watch repair shop called 'In Time' both places said it was too deep to polish out and would need a replacement.
I also had a 2mm scratch on the crystal sapphire watch face that i could feel and was told this would need replaced. The estimate for the bezel and watch face from both shops were both well over £500.00.
I did some research on the web and on the recommendations from different watch forums I bought Cape Cod polish to try to eliminate the deep scratch on the bezel of my Omega Seamaster Professional and was about to order some diamond lapping paste for the crystal sapphire scratch.
After 5 mins of applying Cape Cod along the scrathches then in circular motions, letting it dry and then appyling another coat, letting it dry and finally buffing off with my sunglasses cleaning cloth; the light wear and tear marks and the marks on the clasp all but disappeared, the deep scratch in the bezel was improved dramatically and softened to the point where it wasnt noticable (unless you were really looking for it)and completely by surpirse the scratch in the crsytal sapphire had reduced down to the size of a dot, I applied another lot of the product for a further 5 minutes and the scratch had completely vanished!
I did not belive it at first and checked it under every light sourse in the house, took it outisde in the sun, back in held the watch close under a mag lite to tripple check and to my immense satisaction it had completely gone!
Really impressed, the product went beyond my realistic applications.
As the crystal sapphire scratch is gone and the deep scratch on the bezel is at the point where I do not notice it so it does not bother me, Ive just saved at least £495!
It can be a bit messy when applying....but not really a con though is it?
