My Kirby Morgan and one of my Seiko 7T32 Chrono's both needed their crystals replacing as they had scratches on them so the other day I removed the movements and popped out the crystals so I could measure them up for replacements . I was advised in the past if the replacements are cheap enough to buy 2 as they can break really easy .

Delivery from Cousins arrived today with 4 crystals so out with movements out with the old crystals and in with the new I am happy now all went well and they look a lot better .

If you look at the Kirby crystal it looks as though it has some kind of paint or glue on it

The crystal sizes are spot on everything went smoothly Very Happy

I also changed the clasp over on one of the bracelets for a plain clasp but when done I wore the watch and the bracelet was not that comfy so I have decided to buy some more bracelets now , cant decide if I should go curved edges or straight.

Quite a transformation John, well done. Replaced a couple of watch glasses today  3377044411


Out of interest how do the crystals come out or are fitted?


Does it need a tool to press them into place or a gasket to seal the case to make the watch waterproof? Just curious as invariably what sounds straightforward with watches isn’t. scratch

Probably better to watch this rather than me describe how to do it , The press I use is very similar to his but here is mine

None of the watches I have replaced crystals in have had gaskets but I believe some of them do .

Nice try but this one will definitely be getting worn.
