    Welcome to iMore!

    My suggestion and what I use is a jewelry polishing clothe. Can be had cheaply at just about any jewelry store. Works well and is designed for what you need.

    Or other microfiber cloth, best NOT to use any solvents except MAYBE a little alcohol!

    I also run it under water when my crown starts sticking.

    For cleaning, a soft wet cloth rung tightly and toweled off, followed by a microfiber cloth for the display (but really, works on the whole Watch).

    For polishing, there are any number of fine polishes for stainless steel. I'm not familiar with a 'jeweler's polishing cloth'. I don't know if it will do anything for fine scratches.

    For removing fine scratches, I'd look for a very fine polishing compound such as Mother's Mag Polish (which is what I'm going to try). I'll put a minuscule amount worked into smooth cotton towel and see how it goes. By working it into the cloth (maybe this is how a jeweler's polishing cloth works?) first and proceeding carefully, you can avoid getting any polish into the seams between the case and the display and sensor assembly on the back. Very important.

    I just use a wet tissue to clean it, then a microfiber cloth to dry it.
