View Full Version : Cleaning Plastic Watch Crystal....

Hey Guys.

I have an old Tudor watch I wear everyday. Over the weekend I noticed the was getting a little scuffed up from just everyday usage. I did some research on the world wide web and discovered a lot of the older gents clean their plastic crystal with TOOTHPASTE?!?!?!? :scratchhead1

It made sense in theory but it was just such an odd suggestion that I had to try it to make sure. To my suprise it actually worked and smelled good in the process too :dp:. I instantly regretted not taking before pictures and since I didn't have any of those I thought I would leave the after pictures being it is just a clear watch crystal now. What do you guys think? Have you heard of this before? Any idea of where it might fit into some kind of cut rating :dunno?

For a lot of things in the past, toothpaste was a recommended cleaner. It has mild abrasives, and dissolves easily.

Glad it worked out so well on the watch crystal.
