Hi there!
QUESTION 1) It's an orange one!
QUESTION 2) I'd say YES. Your photo gives no clue as to HOW BADLY it is scratched (a well lit close-up), but 95% of us feel better with a replaced crystal. Others won't say anything to you, but a scratched up watch really does look horrible! They'll think you don't care about treating your stuff properly.
And considering the skill is takes to PROPERLY re-cement a crystal, that price you were quoted is perfectly fair.

thanks y’all-
I didn have pictures, so I snapped a couple of the gf’s red Android.
The watch-maker’s quote is $100 for plain $200 for a saphire (way more scratch resistant) especially as it’s really domed

SFWatchGuy,
it says AD 267 so a search showed “octopuz” as another name.

As I have seen these going for $150 in “like new” condition, I’m going to ask the watchmaker to service it and go with mineral glass instead of a $200 saphire crystal.
I’m no longer working as a fireman, so there’s no need to bang my wrist watch into walls etc anymore.

That makes sense! I know that after 12 years, unless I perform a test that potentially cracks the crystal, I can't tell the difference between glass and saphire!
