My vintage Minnie Mouse watch (Bradley wind-up) plastic coating on the face of the watch "crinkled"

I thought, first, the crystal was scratched, turns out its the face.

There is a plastic type of coating that is crinkled.

Who can I get, or can I repair it some way?

Any suggestions would help.

Thanks!

    You might try using a blow-dryer on very low heat and warm up the plastic coating(warm to the touch, not hot). Then gently rub the plastic from the center out with a fresh clean Q-tip, pushing the air bubble toward the small screws first, then side to side. This should releive so of it and will look better.
    I've seen this in a couple of others, it can be caused by leaving watch on the dash of an automoblie, but it is usually cause by someone trying to use a chemical agent to clean the movement, usually lighter fluid is what people tell me they used and then they ask me to correct. Hopefully the blow-dryer helps you out, If not, contact me again and we'll see if we can find you a replacement.

    Your welcome, let me know if it works out for you. If not I'll see if I got a replacement around here.
