Hi everyone. Question for you. I am looking at a 9 serial Rolex from the mid 1980s. It came factory with a plastic crystal. I had a watch with one and they scratched a lot and it got very annoying to keep it in top share. Sapphire crystals are far better.
The owner is a jeweler who says he can convert it to a sapphire. Now for my question:
If it is not a Rolex factory sapphire crystal, is that a big deal? Does that hurt the value or make it a "non authentic" Rolex in your mind?
Thanks for your thoughts!
