This lovely vintage Omega Seamaster was presented for a glass refurbishment. This is the original crystal (it has a small Omega symbol in the middle) and is made of plexiglass, a type of plastic.
This type of glass can scratch very easily, and to keep it original, scratches can be polished out. Leaving a crisp looking important vintage timepiece.
