    No I don't think it is a genuine Seiko crystal. The pic shows the genuine Seiko package on the right (For my 6119) and the one from Otto is on the left.
    Yes the new crystal is a lot more shallow than the original. The watch maker fitted it cross ways. I was expecting it to be long ways however I think I prefer it cross ways. Easier to read the dial and Ive seen some with what looks like the original crystal mounted crossways.
    At least I think the one on the right is genuine...

    So the replacement from Otto's is another genuine SEIKO part, but less tall... or thinner, and you installed it with the facets going cross ways not long ways, correct?

    Mate, I'd pretty much given up on getting a replacement crystal, a genuine one at least. But I just googled 6106-7729 crystal and followed my nose until I positively located one at Otto Frei. They were exceptional to deal with considering they didn't realise they were out of stock. They emailed me promptly and gave me the option of a refund or an extra week's wait. They also clarified which mail service Id prefer. A week later I got confirmation that it was in stock and had been dispatched. Three days later it was in my letterbox. $20.00 US plus postage which wasn't much from memory.
    Part Number 300WA2GCOF.
    I like the new crystal because being less prominent means its easier to read the time and less likely to knock it around.

    Nica dude... so often all an older watch needs, to bring out its character is a new glass eh... nothing else, just a new glass.

    Looks awesome mechanalogue

    The crystal while a less mountainous as the original, has actually improved both the look and practicality of the watch. Very happy boy. Click image for larger version

    June 02, 2018 16:31 Geneva - Switzerland Shipment picked up
    June 04, 2018 09:44 Auckland - New Zealand Processed at Auckland - New Zealand
    picked up on a saturday afternoon and arrived in Auckland on the monday morning!
    following a direct path thats 18,600km. im guessing the pick up was local time so that would be 04:31 NZ time making it a 53hr journey, at 351KPH so surely it can make the last 361km overnight?
    we shall see...

    Know about MassDrop... someone I know of recently bought a GLYCINE from MD for NZD350

    He sold the watch a while ago on TM for a 400% profit

    It was instantly recognisable my the 'MD' on the box.

    This one came from Massdrop in the USA. It's a sort of crowdfunded mass purchasing type of thing. Check them out, there are good deals on watches all the time. This was the first time I purchased after lurking for ages, was quite surprised by the $6 postage considering they sent it with DHL. Oris, Ball, Orient, Seiko, Glycine and Victorinox seem to pop up a lot. The more people who commit to purchase, the cheaper the price. Absolutely chuffed with this one and confident should something else come along.
