Watch Crystal Replacement

Watch Crystal Replacement
A watch crystal is the clear covering over a watch face and is mostly made of plastic or glass. In its precarious position, it often takes the brunt of any punishment your watch may receive. Brushing against hard surfaces can scratch a watch crystal and obscure your view of the watch face and make them unsightly. Hard impacts, such as bumping into something or being dropped can even crack your watch crystal. In these cases, the best option is watch crystal replacement. Impact without visible damage to the crystal can also loosen the crystal allowing moisture to enter your watch. 

Note that a crystal replacement alone is called a "partial job."  Generally we will recommend complete movement service, especially if the crystal is shattered or missing.  Under these circumstances dirt and debris as well as moisture and glass shards from the crystal have likely entered the watch movement.  This glass, dirt and moisture may soon cause your watch to stop running.
