Question about Zodiac "Sea Dragon" Watch

Replace mineral crystal in Zodiac Sea Dragon ZO-2201

I have a Zodiac Sea Dragon dive watch and need help replacing the scratched crystal. It's the model like the picture on answers. It's a screw back with a bi directional dive bezel. It's a ZO-2201 with the heavy case and no chronograph. I guess my question is, how may I replace a crystal and still maintain water resistance? It's scratched pretty well, so I don't know if buffing it out will work. Do I need special tools to remove the bezel and crystal? It's the Zodiac that was bought by Fossil in the 2000's. I feel these watches are tougher and all around better than the new styles Zodiac is producing,hence trying to fix this particular watch. Thank you Mark

WHERE DO I GO TO REPLACE A CRYSTAL FACE ON A SKAGEN WATCH


Hello,

If the watch is under warranty it would cost you $32.00 to have it fixed.
you can follow this link for more information: http://www.skagen.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?storeId=37082&page=customerCare_warrantyRepairs&nav=leftNav_CustomerCare&langId=-1&catalogId=26505

The other option is to go to a professional watch repair person to replace or buff out the crystal if it's just scratched. The fees are around $25 - $50 since that watch has a mineral crystal. I hope this helps!

Watch lens scratches... Solutions to repairing?


If you have a plastic crystal, you can use plastic polish (I like Novus #2, myself) to buff out small scratches. In a pinch, white toothpaste (not the gel kind) contains gentle grit and also will buff out some imperfections in a plastic watch crystal. Toothpaste is harsher than plastic polish, however, and may remove deeper scratches at the cost of creating some additional fine scratches.
If your watch crystal is made of mineral glass, scratches cannot be easily polished out. In that case, your best solution would be to take it to a jeweler or watch repair facility to have the crystal replaced. Depending on the style of the watch, replacing a crystal can be as little as $15--or run to well over $100 for some diver's watches. If you're not comfortable with the estimate, get another one elsewhere. Crystal replacement is a high profit margin job for many jewelers. Not everyone is equally greedy.

I have a Police Phalanx watch, black and rose gold effect. The glass has a couple of scratches and one of the rose gold markers has come away at the 10 o'clock position. Would it be expensive to repair...


If the crystal of your watch is made of plastic, it may be possible to buff (or pay a jeweler to buff) it. Buffing a crystal is very inexpensive--sometimes free--and may eliminate the scratch, or, at the very least, greatly reduce its prominence. However, glass crystals cannot be polished in this way; the only way to fix chips or scratches is to replace the crystal, which can run anywhere from $15-50+, depending on the type of crystal and amount of work required to replace it and test for proper water resistance. Replacing the mineral glass crystals on some diving watches can be very expensive.
Markers on a watch dial are ordinarily stuck on with little pins and/or a dab of adhesive. If the detached marker is still in the watch, this is ordinarily a fairly simple repair. The watch would be opened and the movement removed. Next, the jeweler would carefully place the marker back into position, probably adding a tiny drop of glue to keep it in place. A job like this can cost as little as $25, if it requires no replacement parts and you take your watch to a place that does a lot of watch repairs, as opposed to a general jewelry store that has to outsource the repair to a wholesale workshop.

My Sea Dragon watch has stopped. I've tried winding the stem in the closed position until I'm blue in the face, but it won't re-start. Any tips?


All of the models I looked at are quartz types (which are battery driven).

This would account for the failure to wind it up.


You can have a new battery fitted at your local watch shop.

I have a ladies Philip Stein, w, double movement. Tried to buff crystal. Now neither movement is working. Batteries are OK


If the stems are in the time positon and the batteries are ok what probably happened is extreme heat. You tried to polish a mineral crystal and it got hot. The only type of crystal you can polish is acrylic. Most of these models come with mineral crystal or scratch proof sapphire crystal. I recommend going to a watch maker/technician and having the movements replaced. A reputable watch maker/technician will be pretty reasonable.
