an anti-reflective coating on the inside of the crystal?

I never noticed, but is the hesalite sort of anti-reflective by nature?

I bet they had some some major glare on the moon:thumbup1:

Good question Amigo

I guess I never thought about it before and imagine there isn't an AR coating on the inside.

And ummmmmnnn.......I don't think Major Glare ever made it to the moon
:lol::lol::lol:

Yeah well, you know me ;)


Be well Pal

Oh dear me Zin,

You've dropped to such all time depths that you should have a watch with a decompression valve.

As for Terry's poser. My Hesalite doesn't have the blue hue given off by other watches in my collection that do have the AR coating. As you say, maybe it doesn't reflect like sapphire crystal. It does reflect some though. Also, Sapphire crytal glasses are usually completely flat. Where as the Speedy Pro Moon Watch Hesalite is quite curved.

Umm? I'd like to hear the definitive answer which I'm sure someone on this forum has.

The Hesalite crystal does not have anti-reflective coating on it.

This is due to the coating being quite brittle and would probably flake off the acrylic since plastic is flexible. Also owning several ARC watches and knowing the color of the coating, my Hesalite does not show any of those properties. The ARC makes a watch crystal look too much like a camera lens IMHO. I won't buy a watch that is coated on both sides. Inside only is my preference, although inside only drastically cuts down the effectiveness of the coating.
