I posted some pics of my recent mod earlier - here Mod of 007

However, while I liked those pictures, they don't really show how the crystal looks in real life. Generally, when taking pictures of watches I try to avoid reflections on the crystal. In this case, it really is necessary to try to capture those reflections to give an idea of the difference between a stock crystal and the domed sapphire.

The attached pictures do a little better in showing that aspect of the crystal. It still doesn't capture perfectly the way the crystal looks, but it is closer. I have read many posts indicating that you can't really photograph how these domes look in real life. I may try again later.


Close up of above


Here are the pics I posted earlier as well........

It IS wicked hard to accurately capture a domed crystal with the camera. Frowning

Very nice! Do you have to have the "triple grab" bezel...

Shoboshi231April 25, 2011 05:23AM

I believe the key is the sloped bezel insert..........

Is that bezel insert tapered or flat?

Bill J.243April 24, 2011 11:13PM

Yes, it slopes up to meet the edge of the crystal.... Image Attachments
