Why upgrade the crystal of your Seiko SRPE to a Sapphire crystal, you ask? Let's dive into this exciting topic and hopefully, you'll get your answers.

So, you've got your Seiko SRPE sitting proudly on your wrist, or tucked away safely in its watch box. This well-loved watch, with its high-precision automatic movement and classic design, has been a solid and reliable companion through many a day. But have you ever wondered how you could take its functionality and durability up a notch?



Now, don't mistake us. Seiko's SRPE is a stunning piece of craftsmanship in its own right. It's a timepiece that blends style, reliability, and accessibility into one beautiful package. But there's one element of the SRPE that many watch enthusiasts like to consider for an upgrade: the crystal.

The crystal is the transparent cover that protects the dial of the watch. It needs to be tough to withstand everyday use, and clear for easy readability. The SRPE comes with a Hardlex crystal - Seiko's proprietary glass that's tougher and more scratch-resistant than ordinary mineral glass. However, as any seasoned horologist will tell you, if you're looking for the pinnacle of scratch resistance and clarity, you should be looking at sapphire crystals.



Sapphire crystals are synthetic stones, second only to diamond in terms of hardness. On the Mohs scale, a measure of the hardness of minerals, sapphire comes in at an impressive 9 out of 10. This remarkable toughness means that a sapphire crystal can withstand most of the scrapes and bumps of daily life without a scratch. And who wouldn't want to give their watch the protection it deserves?

So, where can you get one of these super tough sapphire crystals for your SRPE? Look no further than namokiMODS. We're proud to offer a range of sapphire crystals that are perfectly sized for the SRPE. No matter your aesthetic preferences, we've got a sapphire crystal to suit your style.

For fans of vintage watches, we have domed sapphire crystals. These mimic the look of old-school acrylic crystals but with the scratch-resistant properties of sapphire. If modern and sleek is more your style, we have flat sapphire crystals for a minimalist look. And for those of you who like to add a pop of color to your watches, we offer sapphire crystals with a subtle blue AR tint.



Each one of our sapphire crystals is coated with an anti-reflective layer. This ensures that the crystal remains clear and readable in all kinds of light, from the low glow of your office desk lamp to the bright glare of the summer sun.

Upgrading your SRPE's crystal to sapphire is more than just a practical move. It's a personal statement. It's a testament to your commitment to durability and style. It's a way to ensure that your watch not only tells the time but also reflects your unique taste.

Why settle for less when you can have the best? Upgrade your Seiko SRPE with a sapphire crystal from namokiMODS, and experience the difference that superior quality can make.
