It's pretty tough but not completely scratch resistant. I've never had an issue but it can wear off, I've seen pieces for sale where the coating has deteriorated. If you ever have a need to polish your watch try to avoid getting any polish or abrasives on the crystal as these can harm the coating. In cases where the coating is damaged it can be completely removed by polishing with a cape cod cloth but that takes quite a bit of work!

Can you re-apply the anti-reflective coating?

Thanks

No, new crystal required if you wish to have the coating.
