    Hi All,

    I'm in the UK and I have a very slim 1930's - so the hunter cover is very shallow.


    My usual supplier of pocket watch crystals only does up to 40mm in Low Domes. Typically this is a 40.4mm :-( does anyone know of a supplier of decent price crystals who might be able to help - would prefer mineral, but will settle for Acrylic at a pinch.

    I ordered a 40mm acrylic which has perfect curve - about 1mm at apex, but don't really want to do a ham fisted job by trying to pack the bezel out in some way had even contemplated gently warming it to see if I could get it to spread so I know I'm getting desperate.

    CousinsUK do supply Sternkrauz hunter acrylic crystals up to 50mm (40.4 are available). You will find the stock list 'here'. I will check my stock of mineral crystals and see if I have one at the required diameter, but the heights of these crystals is all a bit finger in the wind. I'll PM you if I do.
