    Slimline Moonphase AR coating quality?

    It's been a while since I bought this watch. One thing that i have noticed is the crystal is highly reflective. I am having a hard time looking at the time. Wondering if my watch has really an AR coating on its glass or none? Maybe factory defect? Feedbacks highly appreciated thanks!

    I do not own this model, however I have noticed also on the dark colored dials it seems to reflect a lot. My friend has the blue dial slimline moonphase and reflects a decent amount as well.

    I have three lite colored FC dials that do not reflect much light. That would bug me too.

    I see. The AR coating is almost non existent. I guess I have to live with it then.

    Agreed, seems with darker dials there's always been this issue
