  • Mineral crystal protection

    Thought you guys may be interested in some of the things I’m trialling with my watches. I run a vehicle detailing business in Auckland, and part of what we do is apply film to protect paintwork. The films we apply are self-healing, scratch resistant, optically clear and long-lasting - I thought why not protect some of the flat crystals that I won’t be replacing with sapphire ...! I’ve applied to 2 of my Lumonox watches so far, and they’re curing at the mo’. Next up my beater Seiko..!
    Take a look

      Thanks for sharing ...There are online vendors that I've come across on eBay and others selling pre-cut protective films for use on watches, similar to what you're doing here. I have had these automotive films on my car's paintwork and head lamps, but not on watches. Looking forward to seeing close-ups of after-shots, and at a later date, how they actually perform over time.
      On the instruments we entrust to pace our lives, to bear witness to our days, and to be the keepers of the most precious thing we have... time.

        The 2 Luminox's look good, but I barely wear them so thought I'd do the same to this baby monster. I wear this one quite regularly and am not super-precious about it, so it's a good one to test the wrap on. Watch this space for results (pun intended):
