    Domed Crystal for Solar PADI Tuna - SNE499P1

    Just home to find this waiting for me...



    I really like it - but would like the domed sapphire crystal - like the SBBN035 I used to own (stock pic)



    Does anyone know which crystal to order - would one of these listed here fit ?

    Thanks in advance for any pointers...

    No idea but Iíll likely do the same. I just wonder the impact on the solar charging... for no other reason than because I like knowing things.

    Might be worth contacting Paul at Tempus Watch Mods, I have in the past and he has always been keen to reply and offer advice.

    Thanks for the tips.
    I’ve contacted Paul & Crystaltimes.
    I’ll report back if I manage to get this sorted.

    ^^^that looks really nice - I'm starting to see why people go for these domed sapphires. Just had a look through Paul's IG feed, he does some pretty good work.

    Managed to collect it from the sorting office & take a few pics...







    The domed crystal makes it feel more like a "real" Tuna - It's the watch Seiko should have made (IMHO).

    Makes an ideal beater - grab & go quartz convenience ...
    - & solar powered too - so fewer battery/capacitor changes (hopefully).

    That looks very nice indeed!

    Did you end up sourcing it from CrystalTimes? If so how long was delivery?

    I ask as yesterday I ordered a domed crystal from them for my BFK - a project Iíve been meaning to get around to for months!!

    Thanks,

    Paul got one quickly from the CrystalTimes UK distributor - so it only took a few days.

    Thanks

    Iíve bought from them on eBay before so had a look before ordering direct from Singapore, as sadly they donít seem to stock the one I needed (CT034)!
