    One notch on a Sapphire will cost quite a bit, since it's damn near impossible to polish without the skills/patience/tools.
    Softer materials are (IMHO) better for an everyday watch, since you can buff out scratches easily.
    Just my two cents, your milage may vary

    Hi Negroni,

    Can you explain to me how you would buff out scratches on a mineral crystal? it never worked for me. mineral crystal is the cheapest of glass available. In my opinion it is the type of glass that is the least suitable for an every day watch. Especially with larger sizes like the K34, just because it scratches so easily. Sapphire is not prone to scratches. I have it on a watch that I wore daily for several years (also on camp sites) and it just looks like a new glass. Also the plexi glass domes found on Amphibia watches still look like new because they are easy to maintain and indeed for those type of crystals it is easy to buff scratches out in a few minutes. But minerals are the worst when it comes to scratch resistance.

    Why should you break it? replacing a sapphire will set you back 50 euro,s. replacing a mineral wil set you back 35 approx.

    No it will definitely not raise the price that much, adding a sapphire will not set you back 130 dollars. for a single watch it will set you back around 50 euro/60 dollars. for 200+ watches it must be possible to get it for much less. I think we just have to ask Meranom what can be done regarding this, or maybe some company which is specialised sapphire watch glass.

    /me begins insidious but not harmful plot to turn dial and movement to 24-hours with 24 at top

    It's ok nobody else gets my dry sense of humour either :p

    You're right, guess I was too damn tired when posting that drivel
    I do think that we should settle on a design for the dial, hands and so forth, before we start looking at expensive options. Raising the price at an early stage will just make the watch a harder sell and we need to move 300 units.

    I have advertised the project on cccp-forum.it and forumorologi.eu, maybe someone will board the train to the Elbrus.

    However, where is it possible to see the list of project members, Comrade Arizone?

    I suggest,if the caseback is to be solid,then laser etching for any design rather than stamped.
    Reasoning behind this is it is more cost effective and allows for a more detailed and sharper design to be produced.
    Good quality laser etching can also look pretty impressive compared to stamped!

    All registered and looking forward to seeing this come together.
    I registered an interest in No. 82 if it's available.

    Just one quick question and this may have been answered in previous posts. But what are the red and blue "hand like" elements on the dial? Are they functional or purely aesthetic.

    Thanks so much!
