Crystal Replacement

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a Hampden 18s open face lever set pocket watch from a seller in the USA when i went to remove the front cover to pull the lever out for time setting the crystal just dropped out of the bezel i tried gluing the ( acrylic ) crystal back in but the ledge is so tiny try as i might i could not get it to seat properly and unfortunately i cracked the crystal

What im hoping for is that someone can point me in the direction of someone experienced who can supply and fit a new crystal for me if i send them the bezel as i don't think i have the expertise and ability to fit it myself i have tried searching the internet but all i can seem to find are wristwatch replacement services and ebay sellers of crystals but no replacement services offered i would be immensely grateful if someone could help me

cheers

hi Simon it does indeed you are a star i would like a mineral glass crystal if possible but if that's not an option then acrylic will do do you want a pic of watch and could you send me your address so i can get it posted out to you im assuming just the bezel will be ok without the watch i have the pieces of the broken crystal too

thanks
