Girl broke face when replacing battery. Can't find EXACT replacement watch. So, where, how much and how long to replace crystal face?


It does greatly depend on the shape of the crystal. If it is an unusual shape, this would need a very skilled person to shape it correctly. If it is a regular round shape, these are easier to come by. This UK web site [link in blue] offers watch parts including crystals to give you an idea on prices. I use a vernier to measure the diameter and thickness of the crystal I wish to replace and UV activated glue to fix the replacement crystal in place and one of those UV nail lamps to cure the glue. This should be done in a clean environment and I use finger cots to prevent fingerprints. The whole process takes about 30 to 60 minutes. Any _competant_ watch repair place should be able to help you. At least you know the process now :)

How can I changw the glass for this watch?


In order to replace the crystal on your watch you are going to have to remove the entire movement and use a watch press to remove the crystal.
this is not an easy job and should be done by a professional
First you will need to get a watch back opener to unscrew the back of your Tag. The three slots should fit into the back of the watch. tighten the opener until it is firmly on. then turn counter close wise until back of case comes off.
Next you will need to remove the watch hand and crown. Becareful doing this for pressing to hard will break your set leveler. You will need a thin pin pusher and look on the back of the movement for an arrow pointing toward a hole in the movement. Push down and at the same time pull the stem and crown out of movement. turn the watch right side up and the watch movement should fall out. Place movement on a very safe spot so not to damage movement or dial
now you will you be ready to remove crystal Since it is a friction crystal you will need to do use a watch case press . find two die that fit exactly the watch and crystal use a scooped side and place it on the bottom side of the watch press. Next use a flat die to place on top of the case press. place the watch face down. you will be pushing the watch crystal out from the top. Press down on the level and check to see if the crystal came loose, keep doing so till the crystal comes out.
finally you will need to measure the thickness and diameter of the crystal and find the exact size. I believe this watch has a sapphire crystal so you will need a sapphire crystal too.
Once you buy the proper crystal it is time to put the it in the watch. Place the watch face up in your watch press. and slip the crystal in through the top making sure its perfectly even all around. Slowly push down on the leveler until proper pressure is applied and the crystal snaps in.
Now you have new crystal . Clean crystal thoroughly and the inside of the case. Place watch upside down carefully place movement back in. slide spacer in . Now slide watch stem and crown back in push down again on the set leveler with pin pusher.
Place case cover on back and tighten properly to prevent water or moisture from entering and you are done.
This repair should be done by a professional especially on such a nice watch. Any watchmaker can do this job and will have the tools to do it properly

The crystal face of the watch is cracked. We need to have the crystal replaced. Where do we send it in? Our watch repair doesn't handle things like that! It is an Akribos watch.


there are many different options, you can "google" watch repair, and choose someone to send it to. any local jewelry store should be able to give it to their watchmaker for a replacement crystal.

I need change the glass.where?


It is possible for jewelers to order exact fit replacement crystals for many watches. However, generic replacements are not made for all watches. If your jeweler cannot perform this service (which may cost as little as $10 for common crystals), ask if the jeweler knows of a jeweler's specialty business that can custom-fit crystals. These small shops custom-grind crystals from blank stock and hand-fit them to your watch. Such companies used to be relatively common; today, most conduct operations via mail-order or exist in large cities like New York where there is enough local wholesale and walk-in business.
Department stores and chain jewelry stores rarely have the on-sight resources to service a broad selection of watch crystals. Seek out an independent jeweler or one that has a "we repair watches" sign displayed.

Crystals framing my Haurex watch face are falling out.


Hi, im a jeweller myself. The problem with jewellers and crystals is simple. Its a lot of work to replace something that doesnt cost a lot to buy (the crystals, not the watch). Swarovski are a commonly known producer of crystals, but you will probably find that simulation gemstones such as Cubic Zirconia are commonly used in newer watches.

I specialise in gemstone setting, and can also work with simulation stones and crystals, but it takes much longer to reset stones into a stainless steel watch case than into gold or platinum so the labour costs are much higher.

It depends how much the watch is worth as to how much you spend on repairs.

Hope this helps
