    metal post 1, seiko crystal 0

    managed to smack my monster bumblebee into a metal post in york this week whilst stopping the mrs crossing the road at a busy blind bend...shouldn't have intervened..... case and bezel is fine but suffered a deep mark to the hardlex crystal. grrr

    any ideas on who could fit a replacement and is the sapphire worth fitting to these?
    here a couple of "before" pics...




    and after...it actually doesn't look too bad in the pics but it's all i can see now!

    The clue is that they are before photos 🙂

    Yeah, I couldn't be looking at that either... would do my head right in.

    I know I was when I did something similar

    You could probably get a replacement crystal from Crystaltimes. They will likely have one with AR coating as well if you so wish. The problem is the cyclops. If you wish to retain that then probably Seiko UK would be the best bet.
    However, if it's not a UK model then Seiko will probably not help. If you email https://www.seiyajapan.com/ with the model and serial number then he may be able to source a genuine replacement. It will likely be the same crystal that fits the SRPD25, if that's any help.

    Good excuse for a crystal swap, getting rid of that awful Cyclops. Would improve it no end

    If you can't do it yourself (crystal swap is a relatively easy thing to learn), it's echo the recommendation of Paul@Tempus.
