    Thumbs Up Re: What a neat idea for crystal protection!

    Hi Jeff,

    That's a cool link I have seen similar products to cover your GPS screen and haven't thought about crystal protection of watches. Can you post the link in the Articles section too???

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the link; I just picked up a PAW-1200 real cheap; looks like a easy way to save the display; the 1200 is just a little on the large size,LOL:-D.

    Re: What a neat idea for crystal protection!

    Done my friend!!! what a neat idea!

    I jsut picked up a Zodiac Desert Hawk. Its one disadvantage is that it has a very domed... (very mineral) crystal that is suceptible to scratches. I thought about doing this, but alas, I think that in order to look right the watch would almost certianly have to have a recesses crystal. The Zodiac doesnt. Plus, the domed crystal woudl be hard to fit the vynil to.

    BUT... if you had a G or a diver with a recessed crystal and wanted some extra protection. its sur a cheap idea worth a try!

    Hello Jeff,
    That reminds me of what racecar drivers use to keep their visors clean. A series of tear-offs that a peeled away during the race.

    Now how's that for a madcapped idea from Casio, a self cleaning crystal face?:-S :-D

    I think if you are worried about the safety of your watch crystal, then you probably are wearing a flimsy watch. A G-Shock, hopefully, would never need extra protection. The crystal protection is already built into the design.

    Basically this just makes the crystal thicker. Just get a watch with a thicker crystal in the first place.

    Greetings anon2;
    While I suspect you're right about crystal thickness and toughness,
    I think you'll find that thickness does nothing for surface toughness. That is how resiliant a crystal is to scratches. Surface treatments are probably the best way to protect against abrasion; in lieu of that the idea suggest here. Which is a good way to "McGuyver" some protection.

    Never thought to use this for my watches, but I have used it for years on my Palm Pilots and it does deliver. I have covered just the graffitti area on some Palms, the whole screen on others and I can still input text. The feel is a bit more "bouncy" but no problems. This should be a snap to apply to flat crystals. The brand I have used in the past is called Warp's Flex-o-glass, available at many hardware stores. Very cheap and lasts forever.
