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 could not be more pleased with your service. Although 15 years old, the watch appears brand new and keeps time perfectly. When it was returned some 3 weeks ago, I adjusted the second hand to coincide exactly with World-Time. As of this morning it is holding true to the second. Thank you for your wonderful service.

I really enjoy wearing my Rolex since you made the repairs. It looks like new. Your staff are professionals in every way. Thank you for the quality work.

Wonderful repair on my Rolex. The watch is running spot on and has never been better since I inherited it from my father-in-law 35 years ago.

Top quality repair work. Works perfectly and is not fast or slow in keeping time. This is the second time I have used Govberg and both times have been perfect. My 1953 Omega works as perfect today as it did when it was new. Thank you.

I've had five watches serviced in the past five years or so, by four different companies. Four of the five watches came back worse than they were before. The only perfect service experience was with Govberg who serviced and polished my wife's Rolex.

I received my watch yesterday. It was in perfect working order and looked new, thanks to a new crystal and polishing the band. My thanks to everyone there who took such good care of it. I am so grateful that it was able to be repaired as it means a lot to me. You can be sure I will recommend you to any of my friends who need their watch repaired. Many thanks again!
