2x AR on the BGW9 OR is a must do mod. $100-150 no brainer especially if you got the watch at 30-50% off.
Here are today's pics on a Watchgecko tropic rubber.
And in case you missed it...here are pics from my mod thread showing the crystal profile and on an admiralty grey phenomnato.
Now my only request is Ginault to make BGW9 variant with the white numerals on black date wheel and no cyclops...aka 181270SILN!
Question to the forum members: Has anyone tried removing their Ocean Rover Crystal
and having it sent out to have an AR coating applied and then re-installed. I deal with lens coating labs and could have this done, but since this will void the warranty, I will probably wait until the watch is a year old.
user cwfmon had his original Ginault sapphire double AR coated, I fitted a new replacement flat sapphire with double AR. The guy I purchased my replacement sapphire from will also apply the coatings to your own crystal.
I believe that the coating for lenses in spectacles etc are different to the AR coatings on Watch glass crystals.
