    I use a product called Blue Magic. No abrasives, just polish. A Dremel tool will help but for touch up hand polishing will be fine.

    First of all let me say thank you because I have a couple scratches on my polished minute machine too although mine are on the face by the crystal. One question what do you use to actually polish the watch with the blue magic or the mothers? Some sort of really soft cloth or what would you recommend? Also is there just one kind of these products or is there a certain type of blue magic or mothers that Im looking for? Is the polished minute machine plated? My watch repair guy seemed to think so thats why he wouldn't try to polish them out himself. Sorry for all the questions I just dont want to mess this watch up. Thanks again for any help,
    George

    It is plated, not polished. If it lightly scratched you might be able to make it less noticeable by polishing. Most likely scratches are permanent.

    Okay. That doesn't sound good, the scratch is pretty small but I'm gonna try and get it out. So just a regular polishing cloth?

    Yeah It works really well on the light scratches from my own experience basically "non existent" now, anything deep like Oakley-olic I don't think it would work well on. I used a polishing cloth and the blue magic and I used mothers too. They both worked pretty much the same for me.
