: reliable watches on the market to baby it after all. But,

If you have a good authorized Omega dealer in your area, take it by there. Do some browsing, look at the GMT and 150th Anniversary models and ask them what they can do to 'clean up your old watch a bit.'

They should have the correct Omega buffing wheels to do a lot of the scratch removal on site. If their jeweler is in, they can often do it while you wait - especially if you are not there at a busy time. Sometimes they will charge a small fee. Other times they may do it for free while you look at other watches.

Unless you are in the store you bought your watch, there is no point in mentioning where your watch came from. I always apply the 'none of their business' rule and, if asked, say the watch was a gift.
