  • Are Danish Design Watches waterproof?
    All Danish Design watches are waterresistant, but It depends on how much ATM is noted. A watch with 3 ATM is resistant to minor splashing of water, for instance when you wash your hands, a light rain shower or if you sweat during exercise. If your watch is labeled 5 ATM, you can go swimming with it (on the surface of the water) or take a shower (with no large differences in temperature) without taking it of. Diving or snorkeling is not possible. If you want to keep your watch protected, please take it of when you will expose it to water. This way you will be safe and keep your watch in the best shape. If you open up your watch, for instance for changing the battery, please check it's waterresistance thoroughly.

  • What is the glass made of?
    Your Danish Design watch is equiped with mineral glass or sapphire glass. Please check the specifications with each watch. Almost all Mineral Glass Watch Crystals nowadays are “Tempered” Mineral Glass. This just means that the surface of the glass is “heat-tempered” (heated to a high temperature), giving the surface of the glass increased scratch resistance and making it less likely to “splinter”. If a mineral crystal is scratched or chipped, then it cannot be polished and “repaired”, it needs to be replaced. A synthetic sapphire crystal or “glass” is actually not glass at all. It is a very hard, transparent material made of crystallizing pure aluminium oxide at very high temperatures. Synthetic sapphire has the same hardness as natural sapphire gemstones, but without the coloring agents that give the gems their various hues. When it is heated, the synthetic sapphire forms round masses, that are then sliced into pieces with diamond-coated saws. These disks are then ground and polished into watch crystals.
