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

I sent you my Tudor, manufactured in the Mid 60's, which I had bought used. I can't believe how well this watch runs. Thank you!

Just a note to say thanks for the great service. My watch was returned to me in good working order faster than promised. Price was fair, turnaround time reasonable, and I'm very satisfied with the service provided. If I need a watch repaired in the future, or know someone who does, I'll be sure to use or recommend GWR.

I wanted to write and tell you how pleased I am with my refurbished watch. I was hesitant in spending the money to have it repaired. With the help and advice of Brett, I went ahead and spend the money. I am glad I did! Brett gave me good advice. Thanks again.
