Beautiful! Look at those squared crown guards! You don't often see them retain that factory shape. Fantastic!

Good eye Aaron. I also noticed the crown guards right away when I first saw the watch, because the contrast between the sharp crown guards and worn lug chamfers was so dramatic.

Thanks, and it's one of the first things I look at. Your Sub looks great.

For whatever reason, it seems the shape of the crown guards are the first thing you lose when the watch is polished. Even fat cases with minimal polish might not have crown guards like that.

Your crown guards look similar to the ones on my 5512.
