I need some typical beginner advice please. I intend to replace the crystal in my basic Seiko 7S26-0480. Not to upgrade but because it was broken in smallish pieces. My question is do I press the new crystal with the bevelled edge bevel face down or bevel face up.? I should have checked when I removed the damaged one but as I say it was pretty wrecked. I have the basic tools, press etc and I have watched some tutorials, tested the movement isn't damaged, ensured dust free environment (under a whisky glass on a lint free cloth) et al, but then hit this dilemma. I won't compound my lack of knowledge my asking what size hammer do I use :-)

Thanks In advance

Dave W

usually bevel side up so it feels smooth to the fingers and is less likely to chip

I thought this to be the correct way too. :thumbsup:

I only ever saw one watch - a gasketed Sekonda hardlex crystal - go in bevel edge down, however it did not protrude above the bezel of the watch after fitting, it was flush.
