    Replacement flat sapphire with double AR coating. I love it! The AR allows the dial to really show off and I love the flat sapphire on this case and having the raised indices. . I prefer a printed dial under a dome.

    The crystal on the explorer type case in the background is the original boxed sapphire dome from the Ocean Rover.

    cwfmon has the original domed sapphire with double AR on his Ocean Rover.
    Please tell me what the “explorer type” watch in the background is.

    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!

    Wow! That looks amazing, in some the photos the crystal just disappears :)

    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.

    Hi

    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.

    I want to get a double AR coated crystal for my OR but can’t do it myself and really don’t want to be without my watch for however long it will take someone else to do it for me.

    I like what y’all have done!
