I have an 6309 (non-diver) that has a pretty scratched up hardlex crystal. I was wondering if it could be refitted with an acrylic crystal. thanks.

You'd need to post pics or at least the full model number for us to help.

Just one question though - why ? Acrylics scratch if you breathe hard on them, hardlex are a lot more scratch resistant.

Accepted that acrylics can be polished a lot more easily though.

Above where?

The model number is 8 digits in 2 blocks of 4. You've said its a 6309 so it will be 6309-xxxx

The first four are the movement and the second four the case style.

It is very easy to switch out to an acrylic. You won't need the nylon gasket either

The key to success is having the EXACT diameter. Figure 0.1 to 0.15 mm greater diameter than the Hardlex you are replacing.

Sometimes a nice dome or high rise profile can improve the looks a lot. Not so much for resale value.
