    Default Advice on removing cyclops

    How would i go about removing the cyclops from this Sub. The magnification is more than it should be and i would prefer it with no cyclops.

    Sorry mate, you cannot do so on the plexi crystal subs. The cyclops is part of the crystal and not glued on top. You’ll need to source one without the cyclops. Clark has some on the fleabay.

    U can either shave the cyclop down with wet 600 sandpaper and give it a polish with polywatch, or u get a T19.

    I prefer the second, and a T19 would look like this:

    afaIk it is glued but on a plexi you cannot heat it like a sapphire crystal...the T19 is the best way to go.

    I believe @capice is correct; the Cyclops is glued on these ones as well.

    If you really want to try removing it, you can try this technique, but your results may be similar: Tell me about removing the cyclops - Rolex Forums - Rolex Watch Forum Post #13

    That was pretty funny, although I have bad manual dexterity and it would turn out that bad as well if i tried sanding it. I will go the route everyone mentioned with tropic 19. Thank you everyone who commented. I appreciate all the help repgeek offers.

    LOL didn’t knew that one Lol

    I think they’re not glued on the plexi ones, they’re made out of one piece of plastic liquid and pressed into a form.

    Only the sapphire ones are glued afaik

    Just get a T19 and you’re fine.

    In doing more reading I believe there are some plexi’s out there that have the cyclops glued on, like this one appears to have from the pics that OP has posted, while there are others that have both together as one. It’s hard to tell unless you start trying to remove it, but then it may be too late to save the original plexi. Going the route of a T-19 allows you to save the other in case you would like to swap it back in at a later time.
