    Removing AR coating on a SINN?

    I am considering a watch that looks very nice, but one of the previous owners had the AR coating "professionally removed" from the crystal. Other than the slight change in color, would this in any way damage the watch? I don't know how the AR is removed, so I am concerned that the procedure might have damaged some other part of the watch.
    Thanks very much,
    David

    Hello David,

    Usually the outer AR coating is removed by polishing the outside of the crystal. This procedure should not damage the watch in any way.

    Kind regards Philipp

    If you look on the Sinn forum there's a thread about removing AR coating. I may have even started it :-D

    Hello Bruce,

    I saw the parallel thread in the Sinn-Forum (and that everything was already said there ) right after I replied here.. the usual double thread problem.

    Kind regards Philipp
