I recently purchased a 1665 (AWESOME!) and it has a T-39 service crystal. I love the domed look and how it plays with the appearance of the dial at all different angles. However, I have seen pics of the original T-39s and even more height and less step looks even better!
As I've been doing my research the past month or so, I've come across a bunch of posts. It seems like the T-39s have a number of problems: fakes abound out there, seal could be questionable, possibility of minute cracks, possibility of letting moisture in, etc. etc.
So, I guess my question is: With all the apparent potholes out there on the (apparently long) road to finding a genuine T-39, are they worth it? And, where do you even begin the search?
Thanks gents for the help and advice. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
