    The Raysman certainly had a curved crystal...

    GW-A1000, too

    Vintage MRGs have doomed crystals, too.

    Boy, it's really hard to show the domed crystal on this one, the MRG-100! Sure wish Casio would issue a metal digital like it. Would buy one. Or several.

    OP, they do show up from time to time on the bay. But because they were a J-market only watch, the bracelets tend to fit smaller wrists only. Also available in titanium.

    I think, given how thick and strong the flat crystals are, that domed ones are sort of overkill. But they do look nice.

    I think dome crystal is mainly for visibility underwater. Flat crystal tend to have a mirror effect underwater.

    I think most of the original all digital metal cased MR-G models had curved crystals. We see here that the MRG-100 has it. I've got an MRG-220 and it has this as well.

    I've seen the more recent Aviator models have curved crystals... not sure if all of them do, though.
