  • In front of me today I have the $1,300 dollar series 3 Apple watchthe one with the

  • special red dot on the side.

  • This particular box contains the most premium version made from a sapphire screen and ceramic

  • body.

  • And because of these premium materials, the price jumps considerably compared to the $329

  • dollar base model.

  • Is it worth it?

  • And more importantly, is Apple using pure sapphire on their watch this time around?

  • Or is it the same sratchable sapphire they put on their camera lenses?

  • There's literally only one way to find out.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • The presentation inside this box is rather exquisite.

  • There is a definite premium feel emanating from the packaging.

  • The back of the watch lists it's build materials: sapphire and ceramic.

  • Pretty premium stuff.

  • Top of the line construction.

  • I purchased another pure sapphire crystal Tissot watch to test as well, and I'll be

  • honest, it hurts me more to scratch the Tissot than it does the Apple watch.

  • Let's hope the Apple watch can hold it's own against my Mohs hardness picks.

  • The Mohs hardness scale has been used to differentiate between minerals for over 200 years, with

  • talc powder being a level 1, and diamonds being the hardest at a level 10.

  • Every mineral has it's place on the scale.

  • Normal glass is a 5.5, so we see most smartphones scratching at a level 6, since something can

  • only be scratched by a material harder than itself.

  • Sapphire crystal, like on one of Tissot's premium high-end watches, scratches at a level

  • 8 or 9.

  • Even HTC managed to use real sapphire on one of their HTC U Ultra sapphire edition displays.

  • That was pretty impressive.

  • I've been slowly working my way around the numbers of the watch face with each corresponding

  • Mohs pick, finally reaching a level 6.

  • This is normally where we would see regular glass start scratching.

  • Sapphire should still be immune to this pick, but we start seeing permanent marks on the

  • surface of the Apple watch.

  • The pure sapphire crustal on the Tissot watch is still impervious to the scratching.

  • I've even been wearing this watch for a while now and there are zero blemishes.

  • Let's bump it up to a level 7 and see what happens.

  • And yet we have another line on the sapphire crystal surface of the $1,300 dollar Apple

  • watch.

  • Sapphire, while a premium material, is not exceptionally rare, nor does it need to be

  • that expensive.

  • This Tissot watch only costs about $300 dollars - a $1,000 dollar price difference between

  • the two.

  • And the sapphire on the Tissot watch gets no damage from the level 7 pick in the exact

  • same lighting.

  • It looks pristine.

  • Finally, let's take it up a notch to level 8, where sapphire should normally start to

  • scratch.

  • And here is another mark on the Apple watch.

  • Giving Tissot a turn with the same level 8 pick is where we finally start to get a reaction.

  • Damage has been done at a level 8 – right where we would expect sapphire to be.

  • So what does this mean?

  • Did Apple lie to us about their sapphire being sapphire?

  • Before we grab any pitchforks, Apple's not lying.

  • This tool detects heat conductivity in gemstones, sapphire and diamonds being some of those

  • gems.

  • And the display of this series 3 Apple watch registers as a gemstone, which means that

  • the sapphire is present, the same way that this Tissot watch registers.

  • Glass however, like on this iPhone 8, transfers heat differently and does not register as

  • a gemstone.

  • This means that the Apple watch does have sapphire in it.

  • I tested the lens on my Galaxy S8, which is also made from glass, and it has no reading

  • on the diamond selector tool.

  • But the sapphire camera lens of the iPhone 8 does register.

  • So if the iPhone 8 camera lens and Apple watch screen are registering as sapphire, why do

  • they scratch at an earlier level than they should?

  • I studied a cross section of the camera lens under an electron microscope and made a whole

  • video about this subject which I'll link in the video description of this one.

  • I found that the camera lens is made from aluminum oxide, which is sapphire, but has

  • impurities, while the Tissot scan came out as an aluminum oxide as well, but with no

  • impurities.

  • So Apple is using sapphire, but in my opinion, it's not as pure as it should behence

  • the fracturing and the damaging that happens earlier than it should.

  • Checking the ceramic body shows that it scratches at a level 8 in the bottom corner, but no

  • marks were made with a level 6 pick in the top right, or 7 in the bottom right.

  • So no issues with the ceramicit's normal.

  • In all honestly, Apple's version of sapphire is most likely more scratch resistant than

  • regular glass.

  • It's just not as scratch resistant as sapphire on the Tissot watch face, or HTC's sapphire

  • screen on the Ultra.

  • I think the Apple watch is revolutionary and truly a fantastic invention legitimately shaping

  • the future of wearables.

  • I'm not saying don't buy the Apple watch, but you might be better off buying the base

  • version, as it does the same thing, and save yourself a thousand dollars.

  • The stainless steel has sapphire in it as well at $600 dollars - just don't buy it specifically

  • for the sapphire

  • It did occur to me that the permanent fractures that appear on the watch could be from the

  • oleophobic coating that covers the surface of the screen.

  • When I've done my burn test on the 75 different smartphones on my channel, the flame always

  • removes any oleophobic coating in the spot that's burning.

  • So in theory, if the oleophobic coating is scratched and then evaporates, the marks should

  • be gone.

  • As I remove the flame from the Apple watch, the marks remain and don't rub off.

  • Oleophobic or not, the marks are permanent.

  • And here is the Tissot watch one more time in the exact same lighting and the exact same

  • zoom on my camera, with no markings at a level 6 or 7.

  • So what do you guys thing about all of this?

  • Let me know down in the comments, and remember, I'm just one guy with one watch, but I have

  • a pretty solid sample size of scratch phones and watches on my channel.

  • And Apple's sapphire is just, well, unique.

  • The rubber seems to be legit though.

  • Thanks a ton for watching, and I'll see you around.
