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
Brett and team- Wow! You guys have done a fantastic job on the repair of my Rolex. That watch was in a safe deposit box for 15 years before I was able to get hold of it from family and, as you guys know, not in very good shape. It took me about 2 years to find someone that would work on an early 50's model and when I first did find someone the repair quote was outrageous. You guys reasonably priced the work and provided several options that helped me get the necessary repairs done but also offered some enhancements that I would not have considered otherwise. I have another vintage Rolex I would like to get reworked and I will absolutely send it to you guys. Needless to say, I will be using you guys for any future watch needs I might have.

Very impressed by every detail of my experience. Very much appreciated the email correspondence tracking the status of each step. I had much trepidation putting my Omega in the mail and sending it off to a unknown entity. Your website and business practices provided me with as much comfort as possible. I made a good decision in selecting your company!

I received my repaired Omega Speedmaster watch and was very happy with the work done. It looks and works like how it used to when I initially purchased it in the early 1970's. I was so impressed with your repair services that I sent my wife's watch to you to have it repaired and serviced. Thanks again for your fine service and communication!

I received my Android Divemaster Enforcer that had scratches on the case yesterday…The looks awesome…Better than new…I have two more watches that I am sending to Govberg for ‘clean and polish.’ Thanks Govberg!

I was apprehensive to send my watch all the way across the country. I followed the simple directions I was given on your website and received confirmation right away that Govberg had received my watch. That was a wonderful touch to make me feel good about sending my watch away. When my watch was shipped back to me I was able to follow it through the mailing companies tracking service. Thank you very much and I will always use Goverg for my future watch repair.
