    I haven't tried and honestly probably won't. I've heard that if you get it too hot it can crack.

    Same here. Mine looks a lot like yours but I'm scared I may damage it if I try to polish it out.

    That is true.

    Seems like often the people who tell you it's easy are the people trying to sell one with a scratched crystal. But if it's so easy, why didn't they do it?

    I have polished couple crystals. One on my wife's small icon and the one on my tb1. It can be done just eats up a lot of sandpaper and takes a couple hrs for a pretty beat up crystal.

    How hard it is to remove the crystal? I have another TB with a ****ed up clasp but the crystal is good. If I could swap them, I would try to polish the bad crystal.

    I polished them while they were still in the watch.

    First gen, forged band. It's not REALLY ****ed up, just a little.

    Balls, ok thanks.
