Blog: What's the latest Minuteman News?

Even at Minuteman we learn something new every day.


Just wanted to share this with all of you loyal Minuteman followers. The other day our OEM asked for a rendering for our sapphire watch crystal which they could then use for the needed technical drawings.

Our reply is gee it’s flat, round, and made out of Sapphire. So with a *sigh* our OE created the technical drawings which they sent the other day for our approval.

As you can see it’s flat and round. But as you can see from the side view there is a bit more to it. That’s if you want to produce a quality watch that’s water resistant to 200 meters. =) Our take away is there is more to a watch crystal than one might think.
