I got my crystal caseback today.
Not installed yet.
I thought the crystal was 100% flat but it does have a tapered edge about 2.5mm around the outside edge of the crystal.
The quality of workmanship looks excellent

Yup Stevo... I saw that too.. it is just like the regular caseback.. with that edge... I am guessing you got the one for your Daytona..

Yes, I did get it for my Daytona. However the Daytona has (unlike other SS models) a flat caseback, so in that regard the sapphire crystal is not just like the regular Daytona caseback.
Anyway, it looks good. I hope it feels good too.

I forgot about that... I will put my caseback soon... At least on the sub my wife did not find any difference wearing the sapphire caseback....

How about an original 1030 - I reckon it would look pretty good through a sapphire case back.

Very nice Eduardo!! I like crystal case backs, as I love to see the movements of watches. I find them fascinating. This type of caseback of yours is prettier as it mantains the same opening knurling of original Rolex backs.
I wish Rolex would offer transparent casebacks as original option for their watches!
Enjoy your watch and thanks for sharing!
Regards, Abel

Thanks for the pictures. I think it's better in the Oyster case. The calibre is not so beautiful.

That is Great, Let's see some pics once you have ready Stevo.
I've seen it once before and it looks great
