Watch Crystal Replacement Examples

Materials

There are 3 main materials used for watch crystals: acrylic, mineral glass, and sapphire/synthetic sapphire.

Acrylic

Acrylic crystals are the most affordable and are the softest material used for watch crystals.
They are shatter resistant, but they do scratch easily or even crack with a hard impact. Since it is a softer material, usually shallow scratches can be buffed out. An advantage of an acrylic crystal is it can be molded into different and unique shapes, unlike other crystal materials.

Mineral Glass

Mineral Glass crystals are harder than acrylic crystals, and therefore do not scratch quite as easily, but can shatter with a hard impact. The mineral glass is the most commonly used material for watch crystals today, and the most popular crystal choice by manufacturers.

Synthetic Sapphire

Synthetic Sapphire crystals are the hardest material used for watch crystals and are often labeled as scratch resistant. They are also the most expensive. The material is lab grown, but has the same chemical composition as natural sapphire. Sapphire is the second hardest element, with diamond being the hardest. Synthetic Sapphire crystals can chip or even shatter with a hard impact. Many luxury watch manufacturers use sapphire crystals.

Repair Notes

In some cases, when a watch crystal is shattered, it is important to also replace the watch movement since microscopic glass or sapphire particles can get into the movement causing damage.
