    Default 1680 top hat 127 or t19

    Well had no more love for it. Was for sale until today..

    Changed the plexi a few minutes ago from an cyclop 25-127 to an T19 without cyclops and i have to say i love it!

    The t19 is much more cleaner looking and it looks more toolish- just as it should be for a 1680. It makes the dial just pop out of the case.

    What do u think/ what are u wearing your 1680 with? Cyclops/ non cyclops.

    Let me say, it totally changes the look of the watch, just love it!

    Comparsion with some quick n dirty iphone pics:







    Cheers

    Cyclops magnification looks to big to me.
    "Aiyah Panerai, buay beh liao eh lah."

    PM me if you want to sell your Kevin, Ted Su, Wotancraft, Piotr or Simona Straps.

    Strap size is 24 mm and or 26 mm and at least 80mm by 140mm or larger.

    Some are too small, some to big even at the gen ones.
    A Sternkreuz is too small, had that installed a few weeks ago.

    I’ve seen a few guys with gens do this too. I love the look! Thinking about doing it myself on a few of mine. I’ve seen GMT’s that way too.

    Not a fan of the cyclops. Without much cleaner look!

    Yup. As said it makes a huge difference.
    IĎve sold it nearly as i had no more love for it. Changed the plexi et voila itís a completely different watch.

    Sure some say a date sub needs a cyclop and only 5513/5512/ drsdĎs should be fitted with domed crystals but imo it gives a little uniqueness to every datesub not having a cyclop.

    If the view of the date thru the cyclops wasnít so distorted, I wouldnít have any issue with keeping the original plexi on it. Iím fine with the way it looks on the 5-digit sub with the sapphire crystal. However, the date on these almost appears clownish so, even tho you end up losing the magnification by making this switch, you give a cleaner and more professional (IMO) look to this tool watch.
