Rolex does well by using a flat sapphire that gives the ice/bling effect (full reflection) at some angles and very clear at others. The domed sapphire is a great touch by Ginault but it killed beauty of the dial.
    Good things come to those who wait! I am really looking forward to seeing more photos of your domed sapphire with the AR

    Here is mine, just fitted today:

    I used a “B25-295” flat sapphire (for Rolex)with 2xAR. I got this crystal from a UK supplier (which is great for me).

    The effect is awesome, at most angles the crystal just isn’t there at all! The raised indices on enamelled dial was a Ginault selling point for me. Now the dial really pops!

    Interestingly that’s the original Ocean Rover domed sapphire on a 36mm 369 dialled explorer project of mine and it looks awesome on that!! - but you can see the light reflection in comparison to the new 2x AR crystal.

    I will post a review after a bit if wearing it but I love it so far.


    edit: this is the BGW9 lume with aftermarket maxi merc hands and drilled lugs. Here are some more photos:

    How / who drilled the lugs and how was it done?

    New Rover

    Took just over a month from order placed to in hand. Did the casebacks always come engraved around the polished part or is this new. Seems like all the ones I've seen have CP and some numbers. Mine is nicely engraved.
