1. Change the glass of your watch, our recommendations

We do not recommend that you change the glass on your watch yourself, as this is a process that requires the right tools, as well as some expertise. If you try to change the glass on your watch yourself, you risk damaging it further. and lose the warranty if your watch is less than two years old.

3. The sapphire crystal, so you don't have to change the glass of your watch

Sapphire crystal is a high-end glass, much more resistant than a classic mineral glass. It is thus virtually unbreakable and scratchproof. Sapphire crystal is obtained from crystallized aluminum oxide at 2050 ° C, it has the same chemical properties as natural sapphire. Thanks to this, sapphire crystal is a very resistant component, it is the second hardest material after diamond (it is for example 7 times harder than tempered steel). Thus the sapphire crystal is a glass which breaks or is very difficult to scratch.
