I'd take it to a jewellwers, if it's a favourite I wouldn't risk damaging it.

I bet Happy Steveo is happy today - after that result - and will be even happier tomorrow if Aston Villa lose!

You didn't say what the watch is made of - taking it to a jewllers is good advice! Otherwise, you can use the silver equivelent to Brasso - whatever it is called from your local hardware store, that polishes them up nicely, also plain old jewwlery cleaner does the trick too...

Normally with an old toothbrush for the intricate bits!

Purrrrrrrr

Thanks, I was thinking about taking it somewhere, what kind of damage could I do it it by cleaning it at home?

Old toothbrush plus a SMALL amount of toothpaste. ( It is a mild abrasive ).

Yeah it was a good day, luckily we weren't relying on Bendtner to score a goal! Never a favour from Tottenham tomorrow, sounds funny saying that.

The watch is stainless steel, will look into the options you mentioned. Thanks!

Does that mean I might wreck the watch if I use too much?

Well, they both need the points - so maybe a draw will suit everybody!
Good luck with the watch, the jewlerry cleaner isn't expensive - and I have heard that comment above about toothpaste too.... Maybe worth a go? But it does sound a bit sticky to me!

If it's a steel bracelet & the watch is waterproof/water resistant then you could always try soap & water - work up a lather in your hands then rub the strap through your hands.

I use soap powder and a little warm water on an old toothbrush.
