    Hi guys,

    When you look at your AW screen under any light at an angle has it got a slight ripple look about it?

    I know what you mean. So yes. It's normal. Looks a bit like an oil slick from certain angles of s direct light like a led bulb or other bright source.

    Its the screen, nothing to be worried about. Perfectly normal.

    Yes. It's either the sapphire glass itself, or the adhesive underneath. I know exactly what you are talking about. I've seen several watches with it.

    Easier to see if you have polarized sunglasses.

    For those saying no, you really need to get it at the right angle in the right lighting, when the screen is off. Bright sunlight around noonish is best.

    Not sure if it affects how the watch looks when you have pics on. Sometimes I swear I see distortions. Sometimes I convince myself I am just being paranoid.

    For regular watch faces, I don't notice anything.

    I can see this too in certain light. I thought there was some sort of coating on the underside of the sapphire glass to help with reflections, I just assumed it was that.
