We believe that quality matters. So we made the decision early on to only use the highest quality sapphire crystal glass for our watches, rather than cheaper, lower quality, mineral glass.
The clear surface that covers the face of a watch and protects it is called a crystal which can be made of an array of materials. The three most common are Sapphire crystals, Mineral, crystals, and Plexiglas or Hesalite crystals. Plexiglas is referred to as plastic and Hesalite is an acrylic crystal.
Are Sapphire Crystal Watches Expensive?
The crystal cover on a watch usually depends on the price of the watch or whether it has been designed to withstand rugged conditions. The different crystals will dictate the price of the watch, meaning a sapphire crystal will be more expensive than a Plexiglas cover.
