    Hi,

    I was lucky enough to be given this as a birthday present (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fila-FA0633-.../dp/B001DDIV0O).

    What do you think of this watch?

    Also, the front glass/plastic is scratched a bit. Is there a way that I could remove the scratches?

    This watch will be of sentimental value to me.

    Thanks

    It's a pretty nice watch to be honest, I don't like Rolex so this is good! the glass problem, you could sand it down a bit then polish and buffer it, or just buy another watch glass, you can easily find spares. I have to say, the bezel is really nice. Personally I like Hublot watches, but they are out of most people's price ranges so I will have to do with me fakes!

    This is hard to explain, but if you run your fingernail over them can you feel a divet/bump or are they just fine scratches?

    You wont be able to do much about any heavy scratches other than a complete replacement, but for the light ones you can polish them out. Use a good quality polish specific for either glass/plastic depending on what material it actually is.

    Perhaps it's also possible to take it to a local jewelers for a bit of a touch up? They would probably be able to polish the glass/plastic and also the bronze metal too. If that's a bit dull at the moment it could shine up nicely.

    Yh, they are light scratches.

    Where can I get the polish from?

    It's good to see that you like it.

    When it was first given to me, I thought it was **** because it was made by a sports company.

    However, after I started wearing it, it looked nice.

    Its an okay watch, not my personal cup of tea but nice none the less
    As for the scratches if theyre just small and dont detract to much from it id leave them otherwise take it to a watch shop and theyll buff them out/replace the glass... if a replacement is in order see if you can get a sapphire piece installed... very hard to scratch!

    Yes, I know there may be a minority who could afford them and I didn't want to be bias. They do cost a hell of a lot.
