Just hoping that BALL will consider introducing AR coating for the sapphire glass in the future.
Really? When they mentioned "Anti-Reflective Convex Sapphire Glass", do they actually mean "Anti-reflective coating on the inside of the glass. And glass was made convex to further enhance the function" ?Ball already uses AR coating,just not on the outer side of the crystal
then the outer AR coating gets scratched because it's softer than the sapphire beneath. Mine as well use mineral crystal instead. At least you got a better chance buffing a scratch out.Really?

I noticed that my Ball watch has better anti-reflectivity compared to my Seiko 5 (though not far more superior), but when I compared Ball with my newly purchased Fortis, the latter is miles ahead. Hence to say, AR on the outer side of the glass is far more effective than when coating inside the glass ?
I went and did some research as what else is a WIS supposed to do.Thanks to all that who has posted. Appreciate all your comments.
Lastly, let me verify this again. So, Ball watch has an inner glass AR coating.
And the convex glass is to futher enhance it. Right.
Hi Scott,I also noticed that the Moonglow Line also has the AR coating on the outside, so maybe Ball can chime in and clarify for us.
I have had bad luck with AR on the outside...nothing terrible, but little superficial scratches that drive me insaneo|
I did some checking and see that many are touting that the AR of today is much improved.
Thanx for giving us all something to ponder about and have a nice day
It has happenned to my all of us, and it is very disheartening.Hi Scott,
That's interesting, because I was told by a Ball watch rep that none of the Ball models have exterior AR coating because of the possibility of the coating getting scratched...and we all know what a pain that can be.

I was reporting what I read in the Wristwatch Annual; perhaps someone can help clear this up.
