Rolex glasses are held in place by the bezel ( ring surrounding the glass ). Bezel must be lifted off first in case if the glass must be removed. Rolex bezels are friction fitted and are very tight. Usually special tools are used for bezel lifting, but in skilled hands the watchmakers knife can do the job as well (inserting the blade between the bezel and case and slowly prying up all athe way around).
In most cases the bezel still holds the glass when lifted off the case. To release the watch from bezel ring you will need a special press with dies as you will need it for refitting glass and bezel on to the case.
I would advice to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help, because without proper tools it is allmost impossible to remove and reset Rolex glasses without damaging them.

My casio mdv-701 accidently dropped n da glass shattered in the inner part. Service centre does not have the glass for relacement. How can i change the glass for this watch?


In case service center is telling that they don't have glass for your watch then tell them that you are going to approach the HQs of casio and complain regarding this service center that they are not keeping parts for most of the products. This trick works most of the time. Secondly, you can contact any of the local glass experts in your city alongwith your watch. They can measure and cut out a piece of glass for your watch or also you can contact any of local watch maker who can check out if he has any glass piece measuring the same size.

I have a sector urban oversize watch 3H case diameter 4.8mm with a broken watch glass crystal.I would like you to inform me of the replacement glass diameter and thickness i should choose to fit the...


I cant inform about the exact size of the watch glass by the model or number of the case. For that you need to use micrometer to measure the thickness and diameter of glass. Most sommon thickness is 1mm. If the glass is broke, measure the thickness of any broken leftover and then the diameter by puting the calliper arms into watches groove for glass.

Need a glass for my timex expedition watch. What size will I need & are they reasonably easy to fit.


No problem with it. Any watch repair shop will order exact size glass for your watch and will fit it. Fitting is easy if you have special glass fitting press. No way to replace watch glass without this tool. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for new glass. Rate me,plz.

Glass that covers the face of the watch is shattered-$ to replace


I am not sure about prices in US, but over here in England we charge £15 - £25 for mineral glass (depending on size, thickness, e.t.c.) and £50 - £120 for sapphire glass. As for today: £1 = 1.60$. Doesn't matter how you name it - glass or crystal, both are right.
