There was some Facebook chatter complaining about the sapphire coated mineral crystal. I actually ordered one when these were first released on shoprenato.com. I was a bit underwhelmed and returned it.

I will be interested to see what the TTV price is.

What I find funny is Avi saying that the crystal is something of an up grade...not so much

Equally humorous is they used that crystal due to the use of a rubber strap (sport nature of the watch or something like that).

"We used a mineral crystal BECAUSE of the rubber strap".

It's my understanding that mineral is more shatter resistant than sapphire? Perhaps that was her reasoning for suggesting this. I personally would never choose mineral over sapphire but perhaps that was her angle.

How many crystals have you shattered? I have never shattered a sapphire that includes a 5 story drop phone didn't hold up as well.

I have shattered a couple of el cheapos (that weren't sapphire for sure). I made it clear that I would never choose mineral over sapphire. It was just a possible explantion for her reasoning. Plus the fact that I like her teeters :)

I realize sapphire and mineral each have their pros and cons.

I just don't like how she suggests the cheaper crystal is somehow "better" just because they're trying to cut costs.

I find it insulting, to be honest.
I wouldn't let it bother me Stormchaser. And BTW if I ever get to meet needles in person and he's wearing that Chronoscope (the one with the plastic crystal :P ) the next time he hugs his wife could be with one arm and a nub :twisted:
