It seems nowadays(and for good reason) Sapphire crystal on a watch has been the go to for it's excellent scratch resistant properties. I was doing my usual spiel of looking at watches I cannot afford and I came across this little charming watch, the (Takes a deep breath)"Hamilton Khaki Aviation Pilot Pioneer Mechanical In White".
I looked at some videos and some online discussions on it and one of the most brought-up points about the watch is that it has a mineral crystal. Some were accusing Hamilton of "cheaping out" by using a "lower" grade crystal, others said looking through mineral glass gives a "warmer" look to the dial.
I would be very interested to know your thoughts and opinions on it, plus owners of mineral-crystal dial watches - how have they held up? Are they horrifically scratched up?
