Greetings,

I am a longtime reader of VRF. I have a 1966 Bart Sub (5513) and I recently had it serviced. In servicing, they put on a Rolex Service Crystal, which provides some funny reflections. What crystal would you recommend I put on it for originality and where can I buy one?

Thanks so much!

All the best,
Eric

It's still called a Tropic 19, but you'd have to look for an older domed example. Watch out for counterfeits. But these do turn up (for big bucks!)...
