Crystal Refinishing and Replacement
The glass that protects the watch dial is the crystal. Watches contain various types of crystals, including acrylic, mineral, and sapphire. The sapphire crystal is one of the more expensive crystals and is scratch-resistant and durable. Since watch crystals can crack or break if the watch is dropped on a hard surface, there may come a time when you need a crystal refinishing or replacement.
The watchmakers at Precision Watches & Jewelry will perform the crystal refinishing process in the following way:
- Disassemble the watch case to remove the movement. This will protect this part as the crystal is being repaired.
- Remove the crystal from the watch case.
- Buff the crystal carefully. This will remove scratches and imperfections.
- Reinstall the crystal and movement.
- Perform a time test to determine accuracy.
If a crystal replacement is needed, the process is as follows:
- Disassemble the watch case. Remove the movement to protect it during repairs.
- Remove the crystal.
- Find a genuine replacement crystal for your watch brand and model. If the specific crystal is unavailable one may be crafted for you.
- Install the crystal and replace the movement.
- Perform a time test.
Taking care of your crystal by having it replaced or refinished will improve both appearance and value.
