Aviator owners -- Anti-reflective crystal?

Post by labenge »

I'm shopping for my first automatic watch, a search which has brought me here. :)

When I look at wrist shots of the malvern and of the aviator, the crystal on the malvern is rather imperceptible. The aviator, however, always shows reflections. I'm not sure if it's because of the black face, the crystal, or just the angle of the watch in the photo.

For those of you who own one, how do you experience the crystal's (anti-)reflective-ness?

I own both, the crystal is the same. I haven't experienced any reflections that bother me with the aviator.

I own the Malvern, and I don't notice any major reflection issues.

It's an impressive piece :)

Thaks for your help. I'm not accustomed to buying something without being able to examine it first! So your replies are very helpful.

I can understand that! But don't forget that you can return the watch within 60 days if you are disappointed and you will get your money back.
