Hello,

Other than personal preference, are there any reasons to avoid a date cyclops? The 2006 contract Marathon SAR's are easier to come by (and cheaper) with the date cyclops rather than without.

Yes, Norad advises against protecting the cyclops from UV exposure, as it is used in Alien signaling devices.

DUDE! shhhhhh!!!! If the Earthlings find out, they'll destroy all cyclopses and we won't be able to contact the Mothership.


Seriously, I don't like the cyclops on the surface. It looks like a see through wart. I didn't mind the older ones that were molded into the underside of the crystal though.

Looks a bit of an eyesore in the Glycine Incursore chrono.

I'm curious about this too. I prefer without myself (I'm young, I can still see!) but I wonder about durability problems. Is a cyclops prone to scratching? Can it cause other problems with the crystal?

They are not scratch magnets and they don't cause problems with the crystal. They are fugly though and I get a lot of requests to remove them.

If they are on the inside, then they are tolerable. But I don't like them stuck on the outside at all. I do kinda like the magnifier on the Victorinox/Swiss Army Dive Master 500, though.

Fugly things. But next time you see someone wearing a watch with a cyclops, take pity on the poor unfortunate soul. Not only are they visually challenged they also have terrible memories. :-d
