Crystal Replacement or Refinishing

The transparent “glass” which protects the dial of the watch is called a crystal. There are three common types of crystals: acrylic, mineral and sapphire. A sapphire crystal is the most expensive, scratch-resistant and durable type of crystal. Watch crystals can break or crack from impact or by dropping a watch on a hard surface. The watchmakers at Govberg Watch Repair can replace almost any watch crystal, and when possible, will carefully buff the crystal of your timepiece to remove unsightly scratches or marks, restoring it to its original condition. When you would like to have your watch’s crystal replaced or refinished our watchmakers use the following procedures.

Crystal Refinishing

  • Disassemble the watch case and remove the movement to protect it while the crystal is being repaired
  • Carefully remove the crystal from the case
  • Cautiously buff the crystal to remove scratches or other distracting imperfections
  • Reinstall the crystal along with the movement and perform a time test to ensure accuracy

Crystal Replacement

  • Disassemble the watch case and remove the movement to protect it while the crystal is being repaired
  • Carefully remove the crystal from the case
  • Search our extensive parts supply and/or the manufacturer’s inventory for a genuine replacement crystal specific to yor watch brand and model
  • If no such crystal can be found, we may be able to custom make a new crystal for your watch.
  • Install the new crystal along with the movement and the watch and time test the watch to ensure its accuracy

About the repair
I am so pleased with how you resurrected my Zeno. What the AD couldn't do after three attempts you did plus the outstanding job of coresponding to my questions. Not only did you fix my watch, you made look like new. The carrying case was a nice touch and the return packaging was outstanding. Thanks again!

THANK YOU! - I recently sent my Omega Seamaster to you for repairs to the bezel, pressure testing and general clean up. You did an oustanding job for a reasonable price and got it back to me in just a few short weeks. I will recommend you to friends and continue to use you in the future.

I had the battery of my Raymond Weil watch changed in one of the repair shops here in the city of Turlock, CA. It worked for only two days and then it just quit. I did my research online to have my watch repaired by an expert of the brand and that’s where I learned about Govberg Watch Repair. My watch is functioning perfectly and I can say that they really did a great job. I would highly recommend Govberg Watch Repair to anyone with any brand of watch. Thank you very much!
