The watch glass is called the crystal and can break if dropped or hit against something. Most watches have a mineral crystal, which scratch easily. Some high end watches have a sapphire or sapphire-coated crystal, which is more durable and scratch resistant.
Scratches on a watch crystal cannot be buffed out, especially if they are deep scratches, but the watch glass can be replaced. Watch glass repair can be done through a jeweler or watch repair center. When the watch glass is repaired, it needs to be glued and resealed to the watch case by a professional.
If you need help fixing your watch, trust a professional.
