It's The CrystalClearT watch & fine jewelry
buffing and polishing system. I tried it on both my Tudor
& Seiko acrylic crystals, and it does shine them up
quite nice! They give you a LOT in the jar, and you just
need a dab on the supplied sponges to work it in. Should
last a long time, I'll say! I even tried a little on the
side of the Tudors case and the watch did brighten up
there. I like this stuff, it works as well or better as
the other product I have for watch crystals, but you get
a full tub of polish, not a tiny tube. Here's where it's

2002:Many thanks to the folks at CrystalClearT
for sending me the review sample of their product. Thanks
too go to Ernie Romers for making the arrangements!
my package of CrystalClearT arrived, I wasn't
sure how best to use and evaluate it. After all, my small
collection of watches are fairly new, and none had any
scratches on the crystal.
having applied CrystalClearT to the entire collection,
I am happy to report that CrystalClearT is the
microwave oven of watch collecting. You see, back when
microwave ovens first hit the market, nobody really understood
how they'd be useful. Once you get one though, you soon
find a microwave oven an appliance you simply could not
imagine living without.
first applied CrystalClearT to the oldest watch
in my collection - the Seiko quartz my father bought me
16 years ago. I used one of the two included sponges to
apply the product as directed. I not only applied the
white cream to the watch face, but also to the band. With
a very short amount of scrubbing, I soon discovered that
the sponge I was using was turning black with grime and
residue on the watch. After then using the included buffing
cloth, my old Seiko watch shined like new - I had no idea
how dirty the watch actually was! I quickly grabbed my
Tag Heuer and got similar results. Soon I had cleaned
and buffed every watch in my collection and had blackened
both sponges! My watch collection has never looked better.
short, I plan to reapply CrystalClearT to my
watches on a monthly basis. This really is a fantastic
products that every watch collector should have and use.

CrystalClearTand Ernie Romers kindly offered
me an opportunity to review CrystalClearT for the Forum.
I was surprised at how fast I received the CrystalClearT
package. Things to do always seem to show up faster when
your plate is full. The package contained 1- 1.5 oz. Screw
top container of CrystalClearT Superlative polishing/buffing
cream, 2 - application sponges, 1- 5"x5" (127x127 mm)
Selvyt cloth, and business card sized instructions for
uses for CrystalClearT aside from polishing acrylic
and plastic watch crystals - are to repair scratched CDs
or DVDs and jewelry (buffing and polishing gold and sterling
silver metals for a high gloss and luster).
are clear and simple - Inspect watch crystal for cracks
and breakage - if any are found you must determine whether
it is safe to proceed. Item must be free of dirt and debris.
I assume they are trying to stop you from applying the
cream to a cracked crystal so it would not migrate through
a small amount of CrystalClearT polishing/buffing cream
on one of the buffing pads provided and using a fast circular
motion, float the pad over the area to be polished. Repeat
as needed until a high gloss is achieved. This may take
2 or 3 minutes of polishing depending on the deepness
of the scratch. Wipe clean with any cotton cloth.
to my review - Chosen test subjects for CrystalClear Polishing
SystemT were a gold watch case, a plastic watch crystal,
gold engraved pocket watch case, and a nickel pocket watch
case. Pictures of the results are below.
was easy to apply and as the directions state - the amount
of polishing time depends on the scratches to be removed.
I would keep a toothpick handy for an engraved surface
or at the joint of case and crystal to clean out any left
over cream. As expected more polishing time was necessary
on the tarnished items than on lightly scuffed crystals.
out the minor scratches but to remove major/deep scratches
you would first need to do some prep work, which I will
not go into here. Secrets of the trade you know -
in all I was impressed with the results I got with CrystalClear
Polishing SystemT. My photography skills did
not do justice but where I think CrystalClearT
really shined well (no pun intended) was the high luster
it brought out on the gold case and crystals using the
Selvyt cloth as a final buff. Almost, the elusive "black
polish". For a street price of $13.95 plus $4.00 shipping
+ handling and enough cream to polish a lot of watches/crystals
I think CrystalClear Polishing SystemT is hard to beat.
Anyone with watch cases and plastic crystals would be
relieved to have this on their shelf when the inevitable
scratch or tarnish shows up.
