Watches have a tendency to be heirlooms that can pass through multiple generations. Unfortunately, the passage of time can leave its mark even on the most precious items, such as the glass on my grandfather's 1977 Omega Speedmaster, which is now quite scratched. Therefore, the decision to use sapphire glass on all our watches was a crucial personal choice when we founded our own watch brand. This ensures that the ÁIGI watches I wish to pass down to my son and daughter will remain as flawless in the glass as they were when new.
