    ripple texture on Oris 65 sapphire domed crystal?

    While I was observing the watch closely, I noticed that that there're wave/ripple textures on the crystal from this angle (see picture).
    Do you guys have it too? Is that normal or should I be worried? :/

    Not sure what you mean by ripples. All I see in your pic is the normal distortion caused by the extreme curvature around the perimeter.

    Seems about right. Depending on the angle between your camera, the watch, and light source(s), you can get 'liquid'/'rippling' effects. Imo, as long as it feels reasonably concentric, it's all good.

    I don't think there's anything amiss with your 65. It looks perfectly normal to me.

    That effect is a desired trait of a domed sapphire. Enjoy!

    In this picture, you can see 3 layers of waves. When you move it around a bit, it will "ripple"

    That's normal for dome glass.
