Title: Astrographic and Super Sea Wolf crystal rumors
Post by: Sea Wolf on January 16, 2014, 04:33:59 pm
I heard a rumor that BWG was working on crystals for Astrographics and Super Sea Wolfs and possible the Super Chrono Sea wolf.

Can you let us know if this is still in the works or am I not suppose to talk about this?

Yes!  ;D  We are now able to reproduce the crystals for the Astrographic and Super Seawolf.  The Super Seawolf Chronograph should be available shortly.  Our crystals are of the same design as the originals, but we can install them without the old style gaskets which are no longer available and have become an issue as they degrade and fall apart over time. 

We can also make crystals for any of these models in custom colors as well! :dancingbanana;

 :woohoo; Put me on the list for the SS Chronograph crystal.

Will they be mineral glass or sapphire?

I had intended on using hardened mineral glass, but sapphire could be used. However, a sapphire blank that thick would be more expensive.

Hi UV, so a saphire Astrographic crystal with white chapter, shipped to the UK would cost what? I could post the watch for replacement, but the postage charge would be most likely more than the item itself :)

I do have a vector graphic of the crystal I could send over, I did print the design on foil and glued it to a blank, but the results were never as nice as a properly printed would have done.

Thanks!

Well, it's been a week and no responses. I must have asked a top secret question that only gets answered on a need to know basis.  :helpme

I do not see a question from you in here, so he probably does not as well.
