Thread: Upgrading the crystal on a Citizen Lefty

    Upgrading the crystal on a Citizen Lefty

    Having bought a Citizen NY0040 I realised that the crystal needed refreshing.

    Rather than go with the standard mineral I decided to upgrade it to a domed sapphire from Crystaltimes.

    I think the result was worthwhile:









    And yes, I should have done a deep clean on the bezel first!

    If a sapphire replacement is available to replace a mineral glass Iíd do it every time, itís a no-brainer. Unfortunately they arenít always available but I always try. Generic sapphire glasses arenít too expensive, a good digital caliper is needed to measure the old crystal then itís a case of seeing whatís listed.
