    When I met those guys at Baselworld years ago they weren't convincing and so is their current range of models. A military or police watch with a mineral crystal does not make me laugh out loud it makes me cry.

    One would think you are asking 250 Euro for most of your watch line they would come with sapphire.

    I don't think that you would want sapphire on a military or police watch because of the potential for it to shatter. Acrylic is probably most appropriate for this type of watch.

    I used to own hundreds of watches (well, kind of, and some with very hard use) I've never 'shattered' a sapphire Crystal. However I managed to seriously scratch several mineral crystals. Just saying.

    One advantage of acrylic for this use is that while it scratches easily, unlike mineral the scratches can easily be polished out.

    That is why CWC uses them on their G10 line.

    I do not think I would take this one seriously... Even Invicta makes some divers with a sapphire crystal and screw down crown...

    *rofl*, priceless, just priceless.

    Seriously guys, my best advise is that you stick to making delicious Pasta, Pizza and Ice Cream and not try to reinvent the wheel, when the serious pros in this world wear a G-Shock, Timex or Suunto 90% of the time anyway

    The big difference between an analog and a digital watch:

    - An analog watch is an interpreter (about 10-11 minutes to eleven)
    - A digital watch leaves no room for interpretation but only facts (10:58:50)
