I had a small parcel from Ed Riley land earlier this and found a few minutes this morning to fit the bubbleboy to one of my 6309 diver mods. It had already got a slightly domed AR sapphire and i wasn't expecting to see that much difference but damn i was wrong....






Apologies for the slightly crappy pics but you get the idea, this dome is massive! It give a real depth to the dial.

Well worth getting hold of one if they are still available.:grin:

Looks great Andy! They're tricky to photograph, eh? By the way, you have impeccable taste when it comes to bezel inserts....

I have to agree, John. I have one on one of my 6309s. It is thoroughly scratched up. Next time the watch needs service, that's coming off, and OEM going on.

I have a bubble boy but it's on a 6309 soxa mod. The "most" original of my turtles has it's oem crystal on with all it's scars.

I have replacement flat crystals and still debating whether I should switch it out.

Dome is cool no doubt about it, just not sure if it's for the 6309.

The bubble boy goes with the 6309-7040 case best IMHO. Add a Yobokies hammer bracelet and you've got a combo worthy of Elvis. Subtle? No. Kitsch Cool? Hell yes!

Here's one of mine

Wow, you must be pretty hard on it. I have four Bubble Boys in use and they have all taken some good knocks and not a single scratch on any of them.

looks awesome!! i would take measures to keep the dome safe such as keeping it under cuffs etc. and that is not as hard as i thought. i did wear a huge dial Citizen chrono when i worked as a waiter and not a scratch..dome looks cool!!

I need to apologize for my lack of skills with a camera. Here are a few pix of that watch. It's a bit of a beater, worn often in a workshop environment.

It has. The crystals of other watches worn in the same conditions are not nearly as scratched. Likely, it was a bad choice for the job.

This one of mine took a glancing blow on the edge of a kitchen cabinet handle which produced a tiny scratch which fortunately is only visible under certain lighting, but it is possible to scratch them without a hard knock. You can just see it close to the 2 o'clock position.

They are indeed Russ, mind the pics were only quick and dirty ones with my iphone.

Seems like these are marmite type crystals - you either love 'em or hate 'em

Good looking mod, Mark!

Indeed. Perhaps a G would be a better option. :)
