    Better shot of the GO 60s on a brown strap. Vintage overload?

    Just got a Tissot PRC-200 (white face with leather band). Nice case but the band needs to be changed.

    sad p0rn


    I don't think so. Most (all?) AR coatings show a blue or violet cast at certain angles. It's completely normal. Does the tint location change as you move the watch? What "damage", also? I don't see scratches, etc. Is that watch coated one side or two? If you are truly concerned, I recommend you photograph the watch from quite a few different angles, under different lighting, and send the images to Limes. But I don't think there is an issue with the AR.

    its the flakey bits from 11 to 12 oclock at the rim of the crystal, probably the exterior AR coating chipping off. ive sent them an email requesting warranty

    This is why I generally dislike AR coatings- it seems to always come off eventually. Too bad, that's a beautiful watch.

    I have to suspect that it would be a fairly easy repair. Of course, they might try and make you buy a new sapphire crystal.

    Finally wore my Stowa Marine Original Roman out tonight. So purty! I took a pic too!

    Still need a watch box guys and a nice blue croc strap. Help me out here.

    All ARs get worn with time - live with it. If it disturbs you, just polish it off.

    Ye I just got a sinn 756 and I already have some slight scratches on the AR coating. Don't sweat it. It happens.

    I polished the outer AR coating off my Planet Ocean as the many micro scratches started to annoy me. I used Polywatch, but I'm sure there are other remedies as well.
