Sapphire is just about the toughest watch crystal options today, but I keep noticing that my watch develops new scratches almost every week.
These are tiny microscratches, they arent really noticable unless you view the crystal at an angle, and in strong light. have you notticed this on your sapphire crystals??
I have a polishing cloth (the kind given to you for free at a lenscrafters) and it might have gotten a little dirty, I had some pennys in the same place where I kept the rag, and I was using this to polish smudges off the crystal (most likely the source of all these tiny scratches)
Is Sapphire supposed to resist these types of scratches?
Also for bonus points does anybody know if the orient CFT00004b has the antireflective coating on the outside or inside of the crystal? (I think I heard somewhere that its applied to the inside of the crystal but so far I havent been able to confirm or even find that reference again)
