    What kind of crystal is on the GW-5000/GW-5000B?

    i'm thinking of buying one but what makes me think twice is the scratches i would get on the crystal if its mineral, in know the caseback is DLC'd so it would be very difficult to scratch, for the price of the watch i think it should be as scratch resistant as a sapphire crystal.

    As a long time watch collector of a wide variety of brands and price points, I have learned that:

    1) There is no perfect watch

    2) The watch one wants, no matter what the price, does not always have every feature you may desire.

    In this specific case, what you have going to your advantage is the large protruding bezel that surrounds the crystal. In my experience it provides great protection against scratching the crystal. Perfect? No, Excellent? Yes.

    Cheers...
