What is a Sapphire Crystal Watch, and why it is better?


More desirable than any other watch glass

Choose a Sapphire Crystal Watch before you look at any other feature, such as movement and origins of a timepiece. Watch collectors and aficionados will all confirm this to you. The reason is, natural Sapphire glass offers the most strength, durability, and reliability.

The different watch crystals available on the market:

Acrylic Glass (Plastic)

The least expensive watch glass is in acrylic plastic. Acrylic is sturdy, depending on the thickness, flexible, and transparent. It is also very light and does not deform what you see through it. However, it could scratch/break easily. Low-end Chinese or Japanese watches such as Casio and Ice-watch use acrylic plastic glass for most of their watches. Also, children's watches frequently come with an acrylic glass as it is sturdy and durable and less likely to break easily. Swiss brands, such as Swatch, also use acrylic plastic glass.

Mineral glass

These are common on most mid-range watches. They are more expensive than plastic or acrylic crystals but also significantly more scratch-resistant. They in real glass. Almost all Mineral Glass Watch Crystals nowadays are “Tempered” Mineral Glass. Wryst Timepieces used the "K1" mineral crystal for the first Airborne collection back in 2012/2013. The "K1" also used for the Wryst Elements collection falls right between the hardness and scratch-resistance of sapphire and the shatter resistance of mineral. If a mineral crystal is scratched or chipped, then it cannot be polished and “repaired,” it needs replacing.

Sapphire Crystal

Sapphire crystal watch is a feature that pushes up the price of top-end watches. Expensive tools which use diamonds to cut, shape, and dome the sapphire and the craftsmanship involved justify their reach to higher range timepieces. As opposed to synthetic sapphire, natural sapphire crystal offers scratch-resistant glass, and there is nothing else than a diamond that could scratch it. In 2014 Wryst Timepieces introduced the world's most affordable sapphire crystal Black Watches Ultimate watch, including an impressive Swiss, Made stamp, 200 meters water resistance, and the world's most scratch-resistant black coating "Diamond-Like Carbon" (DLC). Most other Wryst sports watches collections also provide sapphire crystal such as the Wryst TT watches, Wryst Chronograph Watches, and Wryst Automatic Watches.

This is a great review about sapphire watches and why they resist better. But I think you are missleading. An acrylic glass is not actually plastic. I have been wearing a few of these cheaper watches and never had a problem with the glass. However, now I only wear sapphire glass watches as I had a smashed mineral one in the past.

Thank you for clarifying... smashed a few watch crystals so now I now what to look for in a durable investment. I did not know some watches could have a plastic glass.
