Watch glass


Acrylic glass (also: Plexiglas, synthetic glass) consists of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and with its 3-4 Mohs is less scratch-resistant, but quite unbreakable. Scratches can be polished out with a special acrylic polishing paste. From this material extremely arched (domed) watch glasses can be produced quite easily.
