Scratch Proof vs. Scratch Resistant Watches

The terms scratch-resistant and scratch-proof are technically different, but some brands use these words synonymously to promote their models.

By definition, scratch-proof means the product can withstand scratches well, while scratch-resistant points more toward the durability factor, meaning the product can withstand abrasion.

No matter how one product is described (whether scratch-proof or scratch-resistant), consumers generally won’t notice the difference.

When it comes to delicate accessories, one thing is clear: brands or manufacturers can’t guarantee scratch-proof products. It is better to consider any product that states it is scratch-proof as nothing but scratch-resistant to downplay your expectations.

Both terms describe the ability to resist small damages, though. Watches that are scratch-proof don’t easily suffer scratches because of resistant materials and screening. Watches that are scratch-resistant offer better protection, though and the product is less likely to suffer damage than non-scratch-resistant items.

Most brands use a scratch-resistant coating that doesn’t affect the function of the coated surface, for example. The scratch-resistant coating prevents abrasions and makes the surface more resistant to external factors.

What Protects Your Watch?

When buying a new watch, it is vital to know what type of crystal it features. There are three materials used for watch glass–sapphire crystal, mineral glass, and acrylic.

Acrylic is a piece of plastic. It is susceptible to scratches, and you may notice marks on the glass after some time. The advantage is that you can clean these models easily, and it is shatter-resistant.

If you need a new watch and your budget is limited, acrylic scratch-resistant watches are a great option. Today, you can commonly find acrylic in kids’ and teenagers’ watches.

The majority of watches use mineral glass, though. Both quality and price make this option attractive for manufacturers and customers alike. The mineral is hardened throughout the process, exposed to high heat, and more resistant to scratching.

There is no significant difference between acrylic and mineral scratch-resistant watches, but mineral watches are more durable and more expensive. Over the years, you are still going to find marks and abrasions on your watch—it is unavoidable.

Sapphire crystal is the material used in most luxury watches. It is also the highest priced material, and it is almost impossible to scratch it. As 100% scratch-resistant, the sapphire crystal breaks easily. A repair can be expensive (if the watch is repairable at all).

Don’t let these aspects make you skeptical of choosing scratch-resistant wristwatches. Consider your needs and budget and find the best watch for you that is worth the investment.

Which is The Right Material for Your Watch?

If you are tough on your watch and you need it to resist external factors, then titanium or stainless-steel watches are a better alternative.

A watch made of high-quality glass and sturdy material is the perfect choice for men or women. If you are not as tough on your accessories, you can always order a minimalist watch with a mineral or acrylic glass and enjoy it for many years to come.
