Watches are an investment, and it’s important to take care of them. But sometimes, no matter how careful you are, scratches happen.

If you’re looking for how to remove scratches from your Wrist Watch you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and tricks for getting rid of those pesky scratches.


Watches are often subject to scratches, whether from everyday wear or an accident. While some people may choose to replace their watch entirely, others may want to try to remove the scratches themselves.

There are a few different ways that you can remove scratches from your wrist watch You can use a toothpaste or a polishing compound, or you can take it to a professional jeweler. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, so you will need to decide which one is right for you.

Assemble the right materials

To remove scratches from your watch, you will need the following materials:

-A soft cloth
-A cotton swab
-Rubbing alcohol
-Baking soda (optional)

Prep the watch

Before you start, it’s important to prep the watch. This involves taking off the watch and cleaning it with a soft cloth. Pay special attention to the areas where the scratch is. If there is any dirt or debris on the watch, it will only make the problem worse. Once the watch is clean, you’re ready to start.

Apply the polish

Once you’ve gathered your supplies, it’s time to start polishing. Before you do anything else, take a clean microfiber cloth and gently wipe down the watch face. This will remove any dirt or debris that could make the polishing process more difficult.

Next, use the toothpick to apply a small amount of polish to the watch face. Be sure to only use a very small amount — you can always add more if necessary, but it’s difficult to remove excess polish once it’s on the watch.

Gently rub the polish into the scratch using small circular motions. You’ll want to be careful not to press too hard, as this could make the scratch worse. Continue rubbing until you’ve covered the entire scratch with polish.

Let the polish dry for a few minutes before moving on to the next step.

Wipe away the excess

Wipe away the excess with a polishing cloth or a soft, dry cotton towel. Be sure to use gentle, circular motions.
