Watch Glass Replacement

Does your watch glass need replacing? Is it broken, cracked, scratched or faded?

A broken or chipped glass can often lead to water entering into the internal movement of the watch or minute shards of broken glass jamming the hands or scratching the dial. If you have broken a watch glass it is best not to wear the watch and pull the crown out to stop the watch which will prevent broken glass getting jammed between the hands. Please call us to make an appointment.

There are three types of crystals used in watches. Sapphire crystals, mineral crystal, plexiglas or plastic or hesalite or acrylic crystal. Different crystals are used which is influence on the value and price of the watch.

Typically in the luxury watches, sapphire crystals are preferred. Sapphire is extremely strong and scratch resistant. While sapphire is the more expensive of the three crystal choices, it has its advantages due to the scratch and shatter resistance.

Mineral crystal glass is used on mid price point watches. It is not as durable as sapphire crystal glass however the main benefit of a mineral crystal glass lies in the price of the watch. 

Plastic crystals are often referred to as Plexiglas, acrylic or hesalite. Plexiglas will not shatter or crack, but it does scratch easily and discolour over time. This glass is most commonly used in the 1960’s and 1970’s and these model watches will only fit a plexiglas.
