Crystaltimes Double Dome sapphire for Regia Armare Regatta series

Base on REGIA crystal dimensional specification, CrystalTimes has send us their double dome sapphire alternative for those whom always wanted that extra thickness and dome sapphire crystal.

REGIA now has 3 crystals offering for their Regia Armare Regatta case set :

a) the original slight dome sapphire,
b) plexiglass dome,
c) CrystalTimes sapphire extra thick double dome with blue AR

As usual, CrystalTimes sapphire are well protected in shipment, with protective covering and padded envelop.

First impression is that the CrystalTimes sapphire is almost double the thickness of REGIA original sapphire (4.5mm vs 2.1mm).
Secondly, the CrystalTimes sapphire has a more pronouce dome as oppose with the slight dome found on the original sapphire.
Lastly the CrystalTimes sapphire has a blue hue of AR, which is a love it for me ; but a hate it for photographer !

Without wasting much time, i immediately set to swap out the sapphire on the REGIA Timothy John custom skull painted series.
