Push cracked watch glass into the past
Never, since the measurement of time began, has there been more focus placed on the humble watch than there is now. Watches are no longer just a device for measuring time, they have become an extension of ourselves. We rely on watches for so much more than the time, they convey our messages, notify us of calls, tell us the weather and even track our health, to name but a few of their plethora of functions.
Damaged screens or watch faces can be catastrophic and can result in the watch having to be discarded or requiring long repair times, assuming that the glass or screen is even available. Local cutting systems specialist AM.CO.ZA has introduced a new protective film cutting system, the V-6 Film/180 film cutter, a product designed specifically for the custom cutting of protective and privacy screen films for a range of portable devices including watches. The cutter is able to handle cutting of shapes up to 120 x 185mm.
Ensuring that the film is cut to the correct size and design for the device is achieved with the V-6 Film Library which includes specifications for the glass and screens of most common brands and models of watches and smart watches. The V-6 Film Library is a web-based collection of templates allowing quick and accurate cutting of the required shape. The library is regularly enhanced as new models and designs are launched. Users simply look up the specific design for the required model from the library, load the sheet of film in the cutter and start. A new protector can be cut in minutes to the exact specifications of the device.
This innovative device offers jewellers and watch repairers a unique means of providing their clients with an additional, chargeable service which benefits their clients and saves them money in the long-term.
