If the Hardlex crystal bothers you, Jack at IWW can always swap it out for a sapphire.
As for the Rasmus, this isn't the first time I've heard you going on about one... Maybe this is the watch for you? While I may not be enamored of its styling, there's no denying that it's built like a tank and that the 2824 under the hood won't let you down when the going gets rough. .
PS - I don't care for the modern iteration of Doxa, so my opinion can't be trusted when it comes to their nebulously sourced and assembled watches.
