In your post below you mentioned you haven't asked your watchmaker for the reference number of the Omega crystals you use on the DJ. I'd really appreciate knowing that information as I want to put one on my DJ. Great post!

Thanks.

but they are not easy to just go and buy off the shelf. My guy knows a guy who knows a guy and it can take forever for me to get them. You may well have better contacts - I will try and find out for you though,

Best,

Steve

Could you also find out the diameter? Bought a bunch of Omega crystals recently and I'm curious!

I bought 6 crystals as well from Omega, and non really worked on the 1803. Tried to have my watchmaker try every single one, but no luck.

REALLY appreciate the part number for said plexi!!

Thanks in advance, Steve!
