    I like 'em domed.

      Domed is actually more pressure resistant.

        Prefer domed, but most come with flat these days.

          Domed, although I love my flat on the Marathon.

            Slightly domed generally for me. Adds a bit of depth to the dial. It isn't a make-or-break for me though if that is the only deciding factor for a watch

                If I had to choose I probably would say flat just to prevent the slight distortion of the ends of the hands you sometimes get with domed crystals.

                  The picture does not give this dome a real good show, I will try to get a better one. This watch has one of my favorite domed crystals. The Breitling Seawolf I used to own also had a very nice domed crystal.

                    Yeah, the Capeland 1000m has a great crystal. I think it’s double domed.

                    I made the mistake of using the rubber strap on a dive once and bent the metal hook fastener badly.
