Cobweb under strong sunlight

Folks,
I noticed on my Explorer 114270 that in direct strong sunlight on the crystal, I can see like extremely superficial but visible cobwebs on the crystal.
I asked my watchmaker about that, he couldn't see that, cause again, it's very hard to see, only under strong light... He said that he thinks that it's under the crystal though... Is any of you familiar with the phenomenon? I have had the watch for 3 years now... Noticed that a long time ago... Thought about asking though... Thanks in advance!

It appears normal. Part of the manufacturer process. Two of mine have the same.

Then stop looking at your watch in direct strong sunlight then your extremely superficial whatever you can see will vanish.

Not sure why you sound so grumpy... Sounds like a pretty fine question to ask...

Appreciate the response, I tend to think it's a flaw on the underside like my watchmaker said... Thanks again!

An hour ago you said your watchmaker couldn’t see it...

If it was new from an AD 3 years ago then don’t mess with it until it is past the warranty period.

Lmao. That was quite a response. I made a thread the other day about something similar on my Sub. I guess it's just the way the dials are polished you can see very fine Mark's in bright sunlight. I had the same questions.

Some people on this forum are ridiculous

The point being made is that if you look hard enough, and long enough, are bound to find a fault, no matter how insignificant it may be. Why not just wear and enjoy the watch?

No, he couldn't see it, but he said that he assumes that it is on the underside according to my description. I wrote that on the original post...

I think it’s normal to ask.

At least it’s not another “no SS sports anywhere” thread

Guys,
I am not looking too hard at my watch, I wanted to do an overall, but my watch was absolutely performing like a monster... 325 amplitude, 0.1 bit error, 0.5 seconds per day... Then I wanted to ask the watchmaker if it's worth replacing the crystal because of that... And he said no... It is something that I noticed a long time ago but wanted to know if I should do anything about it, that is it...
Thanks for the help everyone!
