Well, i was in the backseat of my car looking at the rear deck, where the sub is, because i heard the HK rattle again.... Well, I forgot to take off my watch..... (I knew better) I ended up rubbing my watch against the rear window and scratching it. I feel so dumb. :( :o :eek: I can barely feel the scratch but it is there. It's about 2.5 inches long. Is there anything i can do? Any suggestions for my dumb ---?

The scratch is in the glass or tints? What kind of watch you have.. like a Rolex could scratch glass but Casio, Timex, etc couldn't, s0 you being st8 with us or just playing?

As far as I know, Zaino and Zymol are the 2 that makes a glass polish product. Both will work if the scratch isn't deep. If it is, you'll have to replace the glass.

I've never had any experience with companies like these, but have you thought about those windshield repair places? If they can polish out a chip, I can't see why they wouldn't be able to fix the tiny scratch.

When I dig around my car, I take the Rolex off. Not cause I don't want to damage the car, but because I don't want to damage my watch.

If you can feel the scratch, it is too deep to buff out.

Live with it, or replace the window.

Next time, take the watch off.

It *does* work -within limits- give it try.

Maybe I should try the Zaino glass polish on my teeth. :D

Yup, you took the words out of my mouth. Must be something about the way that toothpaste fills in the ridges in your teeth making them smoother.

Now, this is assuming that you have toothpaste in your house...:p

I have heard of the toothpaste idea. I might try that. The scratch isnt too deep. I can barely feel it. My windows are still stock. They have not been tinted, but remember i stratched the inside of my rear window. I dont know if there is a little bit of tint that comes on the window from the factory. I have a "Freestyle" watch. It is not like a rolex. (Its supposed to be titanium. Cost me 200 bucks.) I will keep the wax and polish ideas in mind. The scratch is diagonal across the orange defroster strips. I did not break the orange strips though.

Thanks Guys,

I collect and trade wristwatches (usually circa 1950-1965). Toothpast or Brasso can be used to buff or polish a plastic crystal. Glass can not be polished that easily. You might be well served to see a glass specialist, especially due to the proximity of the defroster wires.
