Looking great. It has a soft sheen. Buffed it a little with a Scotch Brite. I'll finish the stock to match.

Seems we think alike lol, not so much a watcher of Wristwatch Revival but I do sometimes watch Mike on My Retro watches and joined his FB group, not a super collector by any stretch but got a bag full to work on when I've got a clean space set up, favourite piece I have despite being really just a 5 in it's Dads best suit is an Seiko SNKP27 which was imported for my 30th as Seiko decided Brits didnt want recrafts for some daft reason.

Off Topic 
If anyone ever has a half hour or so that's not spoken for, check out one of the many watch repair videos on youtube.

One guy I like's home page: 

WRISTWATCH REVIVAL https://www.youtube.com/@WristwatchRevival    

There are others, just do a search on youtube for 'watch repair'...

As in wristwatch Russ, I often wear one as an everyday watch and they tend to have a soft acrylic for the glass that scratches real easy, you can use Toothpaste for the mild stuff but then something called Polywatch for the deeper stuff.
Auto compound be careful as that I have definately had problems with on plastic, T-Cut brand left discoloured patches on a Walkman I was taking paint marks off, Autosol chrome polish I've found ok though so if you've got that in the Garage you may find it better, whatever you decide though fingers crossed it comes out fine.

This sounds a bit crude but.....
I filed off the checkering, then used a flexible fingernail file, then fine steel wool. I'm going to finish with auto polishing compound. But even now it's looking nice and uniform. (Casio watch?)

I have found Toothpaste is oddly good for mild scratches and hazing, especially handy if you wear a Casio watch, dab a bit on and wet if needed and buff with a soft cloth, comes up beautifully and smells nice too.

I had very good luck by wet sanding with 600, 1000, and 1200 grit followed by Meguiar's Mirror Glaze #7. My Model 90 shines like new! I had to go down to 400 for the deepest scratches. They are almost all gone now.

These werent Bakealite, not sure what they were tbh as were 80s so well past that era although I get what was meant as I've had to take scratches out of a 1940 Pilot.
Anyway good luck Russ, it should hopefully turn out lovely.
