What can I do about my scuffed watch?

I have recently (accidentally) scraped my Lg g watch r against a wall. A lot of the black paint has come off the bezel and in parts it has gone down to metal. How can I get this fixed? All it needs is some paint. There is no actual physical damage, just the fact that in places the paint has come off. I've spoken to LG and offered to pay for it, but it's not something their repair team can do.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The colour on the watch is not a paint, but oxidising or bluing. So if you scratched it, it is imposible to restore this, unless you will take it apart and repeat all the oxidation process.

On other hand there are ways to cover that up. I'd recommend to try black nail polish or, so called, gel polish (requires UV lamp). They are available in gloss and matt. You probably would need to restore it from time to time, but it will last longer than any conventional paint.

Try car model or hobby paint instead of nail polish, it will last longer!

Just get a roaterty tool and sand off all the paint and polish it what you have left is the exposed beautiful stainless steel.

I didn't really want to do that because I really like the black paint LG have used. I wish I could get that black paint from somewhere, then I'd do what you've said and paint it black after

You could try taking a can of mate black spray paint that matches the color and take the can and spray it into the lid then take some of the paint and with a tiny paint brush and touch up the scratch.

If the finish is oxidized or DLC, you can dismantle it and take it to a gunsmith. A capable gunsmith can take off some or all of the finish and redo the blueing.

Or you can send it to International Watch Works in Cary , NC, they are renown for doing DLC coating on fine watches. It's not cheap, probably more than the cost of a replacement watch.

If these aren't appealing, I think the DIY options presented here are your next bet. This watch won't last forever anyway, so I would think a frugal method of repair is best.
