    AR coating

    I have been watching youtube vids and seems Bremont does some crazy hard coatings on the AR. I think it was 2000 vivkers. The steel is supposed to be very tough as well. When compared to other brands like Omega is the AR on Bremont more tough against getting marked up? For the metal used on the case is it just better quality or is it coated somehow?

    I am so worried about AR all the time because of my glasses which always seem to end up with a line despite washing them before cleaning with a micro fiber etc.

    By the way I am looking into the Supermarine in blue. So close to buying it but cant seem to hit the check out button. Such a cool looking watch but the brand is new and I am trying to learn about it some more

    It's supposed to be tougher - however my MBII had to have a new crystal (£250) after the AR got damaged. The watch was less than a year old and had only light use. Steel on the other hand is unmarked and looks as new.

    For some reason most high end watches use double side AR.

    Better on the inside than the outer crystal, but most companies in this price range do offer coating on both sides.

    Re: AR coating

    I haven't noticed a difference between Omega or Bremont's AR coating. But when I put on my Rolex GMT I notice a huge difference! No AR really effects the legibility and detracts from the dial. Although I guess it ups the bling factor and guarantees you'll never need a service for scratched AR though.

    Across my Bremont collection I've yet to have a single AR issue.

    Re: AR coating

    Bremont uses more coats of AR on the crystals than anyone else(Per Michael P). Looking at the watches it makes them clearer. I can see a difference between my Omega's and the Bremont.
