I have been searching but couldn’t find anything. Is it possible to remove Apple Watch scratches? The body looks mate but the bezel seems to be mirror polished. Anyone has a method?

Thanks!

You can easily remove scratches, matching the bead blasted finish is nearly impossible though.

Why don’t you give me an example? Obviously I wasn’t able to find anything

You can use a metal Polish with a dremel tool and a polishing wheel pad and buffing it out with compound but at that point go all out and run it along the entire watch external casing. It will change the appearance of the titanium finish and make it look more like stainless steel.

Thanks but ultra has not the same finish as former Ti Apple Watches, what described on those posts will ruin the ultra. I was looking specific Ultra threats.

Thanks I watched some YouTube videos polishing the ultra and the result looks awful to me. At this stage I assume that’s there’s no way, so I better get use to scratches

Actually, that thread doesn't answer the OP's question at all. That thread is about a series 6 Ti, with a brushed finish. Really easy to remove scratches on those watches (or polish them to a mirror shine, like I've done with my series 7 Natural Ti). But the Ultra has a sandblasted finish, which is basically impossible to replicate. So no, that thread you posted a screenshot of doesn't help at all.

And to the OP - no, I do t think it's possible to remove scratches without completely messing up the Ultra's sandblasted finish.
