theDeerCreekHouse's Shop Announcement

✥ Postage rates increased this past week. Please take note of shipping dates. Some items are ✥ READY to SHIP ✥ but if you need something by a particular date, please contact me before Checkout, to be sure that I can meet a special request. Etsy's focus is on handmade items, rather than filling orders in a warehouse fashion. This is the human connection that those of us who buy and sell on Etsy appreciate most about it. Like many Etsy shop owners, I have another job, a home to maintain, etc. Because all the items in my shop are made, or at least adjusted by hand, and because I like to be in a peaceful state of mind when I do this work, it takes some time.

✥ Please understand that I have no control over the Post Office, once I drop your order in the mail.

A note on watch face crystals: The crystal on several of my watches is a "mineral acrylic" crystal. This is the common alternative nowadays, even among very high end watches. This is not simple plastic, but more like the Polycarbonates that are used in eyeglass lens. Just as eyeglass makers have found more benefit to using acrylics, so have watch makers.
Acrylic watch crystal is more durable than glass. It requires a very strong and a sharp shock to break. Acrylic crystals are mounted on pilot and military watches, even on the most prestigious ones like the Omega Speedmaster (crystal called "Hesalite" by Omega) that went to the moon. An acrylic crystal is still used today on the new Omegas.
