Welcome! I think there are two separate camps. I'm for leaving automatics to rot in a normal watch box, wind them up only when you need to wear lol.

Well, it will be sunken in (or rather protrude out for flat crystal) for this design of bezel insert which is sloping. Mine is double dome sapphire, necessary to look normal as opposed to sticking to flat crystal.

Ya got different levels of dome lor, also whether got the little Seiko SKX style long kang between crystal and bezel.

It’s a long story for me. Basically I thought I had the right crystal times sapphire but the guy selling gave me the wrong piece.. That one would have been continuous actually, but quite ok with how it turned out. Mr Goh install his.

Your dome from DLW? Looks a bit too domed but also ok la. Everyone got own pref.

only insert came from DLW but my DD came from Sunny (Carousell). still not that continuous though...i can feel the bezel metal wall - then the sunken insert - then the crystal. i wish it can still be more continuous. Will ask my modded to add more 3M to make the insert and the crystal more even.

not too much domed in my opinion (as compared to my other domed - that one looks like a Stadium )

Trouble is different sources.. Was it the CIS version? Sunny should be carrying Crystal Times.

its crystal times, yes, its the CIS version. i opted to get crystal times as i see a lot of people using them (albeit a bit more pricey, but i'm totally happy with how the crystal looks)
