Default Small things can have a big impact

Well...not according to my wife...

However, I think the changing of the small dome OEM hardlex crystal on my Sumo to a double dome blue AR coated sapphire crystal made a pretty big difference in the way the watch looks.
I was afraid the blue AR coating was going to be overly noticeable, but it's very subtle and doesn't interfere with reading the dial at all.
I really love it.

On my 7.25 Inch wrist.

I love it! I order all my watches with double dome if appropriate to the model and era the watch is placed in. OEM (original equipment manufacturer) could apply to Seiko but I believe they produce all in-house. OEMs are third party manufacturers that make parts or equipment for another manufacturers. The gearbox in my Opel is not made by Opel but with Opel specs by a specialised gearbox manufacturer. Hence an OEM part.

Your Seiko mod looks fantastic.
and My Queen indicates that every one of my watches looks the same, so I don't ask her.
