Dear all. I am Sonil from Sapphire Crystals AR Us. I can not vouch for eye lens companies but I believe they like us use a Physical Vapor Depositon process. Specifically we use reactive magnetron sputtering (anyone who is interested in the science I can send a PDF). The difference between companies is in the metal oxides that are use to comprise the AR layers. The multi layer AR coats that we use reduce the reflection of the sapphires to less than 0.5% essentially getting the results you see above (natural sapphire has a reflection of 8%). Hope this helps.
The AR coating is def a plus, but the original crystal is no chump and speaks quality.

More shots of the dial, rehaul with that amazing brushing/finishing. I don't think there is another brand that offers a dial at this quality at this price range.
My two most worn watches. Ginault seriously punches above it's weight, as this thread continuously points out. I get just as much enjoyment from my Ginault as I do from my Speedmaster. They're both beautifully crafted and a pleasure to wear. Please forgive the bit of stickiness on the bezel. My daughter must've smudged it with food haha
Finally arrived! The Gilt is nice, a very nice yellow gold with some decent reflectiveness. And a flat Sapphire, different from the mk1.
My ocean rover is with Duarte over at NEWW right now. I used the crystal that G4_chrono advised me of. I also bought a second high silver seconds hand to replace the red one. The red one was a cool touch but I like the clean look with the silver. Will be sure to post updates once received.
