Don't just dismiss acrylic as inferior just because some people throw up their noses at it. It's shatterproof, easily polished back to like-new condition in seconds if you happen to get a scratch, and as anyone familiar with the Vostok Amphibia can tell you, an acrylic crystal-based design can even improve the water resistance of a watch. On many watches, I'll actually prefer acrylic to mineral because of the ability to easily remove scratches. I'm a pretty big guy (6'5", 315) and I sometimes bang my watches into stuff, so a watch with a crystal that doesn't shatter and which I can buff scratches out of is really nice to have.

Just got an email from Thomas today, my seagull 1963 reissue is on it's way to Oz.
He shipped mine on Sunday hopefully it gets to Sydney before the 5 day long weekend. I do have one complaint about Thomas though, before I purchased the watch he would respond to emails within 12hours but after payment it took me two emails and around 5 days before I got a response from him regarding when my watch would be shipped. I do remember reading a similar complaint in this thread?
So, was it the watch with the Chinese text at the bottom (the "newer" dial variation) or the older one with the Chinese text on it? I emailed Thomas asking if he had any available, but haven't heard back yet. Let's see!
