Took the bracelet off my old mako and replaced it with a Seiko strap.
Plastic crystal? Look for a tube of PolyWatch - I think it sells for around $7 on Amazon. It's designed to take the scratches out of acrylic watches. I have an homage with a plastic crystal and it requires treatment from time to time as I'm a watch-basher.
I've used toothpaste on mine, did the job and protects it from cavities.
I own a KLR so I'll try the toothpaste first.
If that don't work I'll try the poly watch. Thanks for the tip. Oh and I love the smooth sweeping movement of this watch.
My vintage (looking) Bond-ish looking diver.
Great... Now I want an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.
mmmm, like the styling.
went past the local Rolex store this morning (to drool) they were closed though, Lucky?
Seamaster Planet Ocean 2201.50
Black face, black ring, white hands/numbers.
Google shows it from $3290 to $3800, from various sellers.
My daily-wearer is a Seamaster mid-size 300m. Also with a black ring/face.
I've used a variety of things for polishing watches a plastic crystals, but I've settled on the Cape Cod Polishing Cloth. It's fantastic for crystals (non-sapphire), gold, and polished stainless. You can find them at most real hardware stores. If you're restoring a watch with any brushed surfaces, like a Rolex Submariner bracelet, you can use a Scotchbrite pad to restore the finish. Just tape off the polished areas and run the pad in the direction of the grain on the brushed surfaces.
I knew I shouldn't take my Seiko Bullhead on the bicycle. But I did.
35 chrono-stopped minutes on the bumpy race bike.
Now it's dead.
I ALMOST picked up a Zenith Pilot Big Date Special over the weekend. Saw it at a ridiculously low clearance price at a jeweler, new, and after contemplation and sleep, decided yesterday I'd go back and buy it.
Not sure if it means I'm unlucky or lucky, but by the time I got there, it had been sold.
Zenith's 36,000bph El Primero movement is just a thing of breathtaking beauty.
anyone know where I can find a new Chrystal for my Zodiac Desert hawk? It is about 16 years old....
But if you want a new crystal for your watch...Google is your friend. There's a phone number at the bottom of the page. Any watchmaker should be able to install it but it might be easier just to ship it back to them.
Might try these guys, nothing else they might lead you down the right path
They have a cool dial
Here's what i want it to look like again...
Picked up another Eco-Drive

I waited and waited and waited and waited patiently, even when the on sale date changed three times, but I finally got myself a Maratac Pilot.
Not my picture.
Need to get myself a similar strap.
Nice watch, I like that style, very similar to my Fortis. A good strap makes a watch. I also have a dirt cheap knock-off, with a really good strap, it lofts the appearance significantly.
They are kewl, aren't they? I just got this one in a trade:
Mikey likey! That one is on my list.
