cooking accident

Hi All,

One of my watches (not my VC) was the victim of a small cooking accident. The recipe called for lime juice, and some of it splashed on the sapphire glass without me noticing.  I didn't realize the drop of lime juice until the morning after when I carefully cleansed it. It seems the acid ate away part of the coating.... it's barely noticeable, you'd have to really look at a certain angle in order to see it.  Is it the type of thing that can be fixed or I eventually will need a new glass?

By the way, the culprit recipe was this one...

it is possible however unless you crystal has a special shape or size which would make changung it expensive it is just as easy and even faster just to get a new crystal.
