    Happy Wednesday, all! Still sporting the Seamaster 300 Chrono! First time I’ve worn the same watch for a week straight since I bought my PO GMT!

    When you look at the forums does it show ads for Polywatch? ;)

    Seriously, it is a beautiful piece. I just had to give you a hard time about the crystal. :whistling:

    Kids ; ) - That crystal is as smooth as a baby's bottom.

    True Vintage Lovers recognize Aged Stress Cracks in Plexi ; )

    That is wet sanded with 3000 grit, then 5000 grit, then 7000. Once that is done it is a polywatch equivalent: Maguires PlastX

    I can have a hard time finding meaning in some of their music, period.

    Just be careful not to bump the crystal. Its structural integrity has been severely compromised by the breakdown of long chain polymer bonds in the plastic.

    I wouldn't be comfortable wearing it as a "beater".
