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
My 45 to 50 year old Omega self winding wrist watch, that you repaired for me several months ago, looks and works like new and I want to thank you very much.

I am quite pleased with your services. The watch was returned ahead of schedule, and it looks and works great! Thanks for your prompt and competent attention to my watch.

After inspecting my Breitling under an illuminated 20x loupe, I would rank the repair as 100...no lint, dust, fingerprints or anything such. The hands line up perfectly, the finish on the case and bracelet are as factory. The bezel rotates with an appropriate amount of drag, in other words, the o-rings are properly installed and lubricated... the the watch has managed to keep accuracy to an approximately .2 second loss, well within COSC specification.

This TAG Heuer watch was an engagement gift to my fiancee during our courtship and has special meaning. Thank you for the repair at a reasonable price!!

I was extremely pleased with the work you performed on my Rolex - it looks as good as it did in 1972 when I purchased it - and for the first time it keeps time the way I always expected it to.

Thank you for resurrecting my Jaeger LeCoultre Watch. It has been many years since I wore it. It is now just as I remember it when I bought it in 1956 at a department store in Dayton, Ohio. I looks shiny and brand new.
