Default Can I replace the SARG009 crystal with SARB029 crystal?

I want to try and give the SARG009 a retro feel by replacing the its crystal with the more domed crystal of the SARB029, I couldn't find specs to the crystal size, anybody knows if that is possible? Also where can I buy a SARB029 crystal?

Hi, I own these 2 watches, and I don't think it would be possible, as they are not the same size (40,3mm for the SARG009, 36mm for the SARB029).
Also, the hardlex crystal of the SARB029 is very high and prone to scuff (believe me...), and I wouldn't replace the nice lightly domed sapphire crystal of the SARG009 with any hardlex one

Best regards,
Mathieu

Thanks!
plus, I just realized the sarb029 is going to be hard to get.
This happens to me time and again, I see a model I wasn't familiar with, I fall in love with it and then find out its no longer available.
Let me know if you are interested in selling yours :-)

That aggressive dome would look pretty awesome on the SARG.
