Specs sheet says mineral glass yet one of the pictures clearly shows "sapphire glass" written on the back, so what is it then?

I have read on multiple sites it is in fact sapphire.

The pre-2013 models with the silver 60min chrono hand had the mineral glass windows. The newer orange hand ones (pictured) are sapphire.

According to a 2010 ABW review the watch uses "sapphire coated mineral crystal". You can read the review here: http://www.ablogtowatch.com/techne-sparrow-hawk-watch-review/
The official website (where Massdrop has got these photos from) does not specify what crystal is use: http://technewatches.biz/product/sparrowhawk-37305

@Frazzl As indicated by the caseback, this is indeed a sapphire crystal. What @Divisi0n mentioned is correct.

Thanks Christopher. Any chance to get the brown leather strap as an option for the manual wind chronograph?
