I'd prefer domed sapphire but I prefer _anything_ over mineral glass including hardlex.Am I in a minority for *not* wanting an acrylic crystal?
Nice, I like the color.
I was thinking the star would be a reference to the 1963 re-issue, and just about every other tianjin watch I see on the 'bay.Linsook's render deserves better hands İMO. But i'm not shure what kind. İt looks like a braun alarm clock with those
Reagding a red star and all, i find that a too literate influence, if you know what i mean.
İ would also vote for domed sapphire.
Regarding the crystal, the problem with "domed" sapphire is that it generally isn't very domed. ....(snip)....
I think this look requires acrylic or Hardlex (and I'm not sure Hardlex is available to us either):
Colin, I have asked it before and will do so once again: can you please stop posting pics of the LLD? :-d It's temptation flying in my face over and over again; more than once did I come close to buying one ..... If I would do so now, I have to bow out of this project as it will send my watch fund in the red. We can't have that.ColinW said:Although this recent Longines pic shows a nice compromise:
Very nice pics, skywatch! The raketa being that scratched off of just your clothes....dude, what do you wear, sandpaper?! Lol.
