    I thought I read proprietary mineral crystal in an earlier post. Can’t see sapphire as an option with the cost. I’d be good with acrylic too. If it was good enough then, it’s good enough now.

    Seems acrylic flex is what helps with depth rating so not sure a stiffer crystal material is that desired unless people are really gonna beat on these things and see more scratches than from just desk diving. Polywatch is our friend.

    You’re right ... may I suggest to try to build a replica, no (too) shiny hands, no perfect lume, no mirror polish case... a soviet looking watch !
    Congrats on all the contributors

    Not sure about that :)

    Let’s keep it in the spirit of things without it looking too homemade. Times have moved on a bit.

    I prefer acrylic, it can always be polished and cheaper to replace. Moreover, I prefer the idea of a replica, but I will be ok with whatever agreement is reached, as long as we have our sadko's

    I agree with comrade RFollia: better the plexi than mineral glass. In addition to what he has said, its glow is warmer and it ages much better. I would prefer a replica too, but I will accept whatever is decided there.

    I backed the project no matter what, but I had asked the same question.

    No definitive answer other than they are trying to make it as close to the original as possible.

    Hopefully it can be laser marked if it can’t be physically engraved or embossed...

    I agree but embossing would be much more preferable?

    Embossing would be awesome, but that might need a lot of costly tooling to produce. Engraving should be possible and a lot more “permanent” than laser marking. Salt water might corrode laser marking over time even if we’ll passivated during finishing.

    First post in 2 weeks on watch.ru regarding the Sadko. Read into it what you will:

    "We thought to do this summer, but I feel it will not work. Without drawings everything is difficult.
    There is no solution for the rest. Therefore, I am silent, this is secondary for the time being.
    Phosphor luminous, simple. green. Or white and green. In short, the standard.
    The man is now at the production left, waiting for news from him.
    The main task now is to make arrows and tsifer. To set everything right and in place."
