    Do you mean this crown?

    Those crowns are quite different than the ones available for purchase on Meranom's site right now. I got one for my 710 scuba dude and found that the extremely dull brushing didn't match the case at all and I am back to the stock crown. I would order the crowns Arizone pictured in a heartbeat.

    I may try polishing the crown once my second one arrives (ordered it for another watch before the first one arrived). I would hate to waste a cape cod cloth just polishing one crown.

    The wait is killing me. I'm seriously tempted by ordering a SRP773 and waiting for the K39's which will be hopefully released in November.

    Wow, you are all obviously correct. I think the shiny crown pictured is actually the crown on the new Neptunes (I have a silver one) without the Vostok "B" etching. On the more dull, currently for sale Meranom crown, the brushing may not be brushing at all, but tool marks from the machining process. It might be possible to polish the crown face a little but the scalloped edges would be tough to shine. Maybe a passivation in a weak acid or even citrus juice followed by buffing might do the trick over multiple attempts. Good thing they weren't expensive so I won't feel bad if I damage them or don't use them now.

    I'm also pointing at the Seiko Turtle, in my case I was thinking about the PADI limited edition...the problem is that I'm waiting for the NVCh-30, I want to get a Doxa 300T and of course I'm working on the Slava project, PLUS I would like to make a 1967 reissue with paddle hands.

    What else is he dishonest about?
