    I wish it had sapphire coated. It is in fact more expensive and better.

    Here are the differences from what I have seen/read and experienced:

    1. mineral +shatter resistant -scratches quicker +easy and cheap to produce
    2. full sapphire -shatters quicker +scratch resistant +cheaper to produce as sapphire coated mineral
    3. sapphire coated mineral +shatter resistant + scratch resistant - hard and expensive to produce

    PS. Seller is the official Starking store.
    Finally got a shipping notification...seeing the posts here about spotty quality I'm worried I might get a dud as I really like the watch.
    Fingers crossed..will post here when it arrives.

    BTW...thanks folks for taking the time to share info....no surprise that WUS is my primary source of information.
    It's time...

    Funny you should say that...I was just looking at my Burei field (sapphire) vs a new Invicta bronze (their mambo jambo Trinite flame-fusion crystal) and the Burei looks dull, it's a fingerprint magnet whereas the Invicta has beautiful coating and is both fat and clear.
    So not all sapphire glass is created equal...or the desirable glass.

    @ Ipse
    If those photos are realistic of real life I'd say there is definitely something wrong with the Burei crystal.

    I've not seen anything that dull apart from some politicians.

    Maybe you took it outside where you live and it is still frozen.

    Too funny...ask me again in February what an ice cube with a Burei inside looks like.

    My impulse buy (Friday order from Amazon Prime) Starking AMO 184 Gold Case wtih Brown Leather Strap arrived today. It is working -- yeah. The winding mechanism seems stiff and unrefined but for $45.00, I am pleased if it works and keeps reasonable time. It looks fantastic and certainly more than $45.00. The date window or date dial is a bit misaligned. My Black Starking with steel bracelet that I ordered earlier from Amazon for $47.00 is still finding its way from China.

    No wrist shot as I cannot seem to get it right.

    I made the same remarks about mine. Other than that, it's perfect. Now it' s running a bit fast but in two weeks I'll try to regulate it

    Very nice! Refreshing to see you ordered the version with the arabics at the 12 and 6 ... and in gold tone, no less! I think the Arabics version looks much better than the all indices version (which I own, and which seems to be the majority forum choice), which to my eye is a bit monotonous. Enjoy!

    The black Starking AMO184 is now available from Amazon at $49.99 with $3 coupon. And it now qualifies for prime . I am getting my black Starking by snail and fish/bird mail, but got my gold and leather through prime 2 day.
