If you visit a reputable clockmaker / watchmaker they should be able to source and fit a replacement glass

I have a vintage ladies wrist watch by CYMA. There seems to be no lip to catch on for opening the back. Does it unscrew?


If the back of your watch is completely smooth, the odds are that it has a snap-fit case. Screw-back wristwatch cases generally have small indentations in the case back into which you fit a case wrench. Rolexes have an elaborately ridged edge to their case backs and take a special wrench. A few early water-resistant watches have little screws that hold the front and back of the case together, but these are usually quite obvious, and you didn't mention them in your description.

Most "fancy" ladies watches of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, had snap-back cases. To open one of these without damaging the case, I recommend gently working a decent quality case knife into the crack where the case back joins the case and gently levering up. If the case is really snug, you may need to do this in a few places to gradually pry apart the case halves. Often, the best place to do this is at the lugs, because they offer a leveraging point. I don't recommend doing this with a sharp knife blade, as the resistance from the case will probably damage the knife edge, and if the knife slips, it can easily scratch the case. If you don't have a case knife, try using the rounded edge of a butter or table knife. Do not use a flathead screwdriver blade, as the short width of that tool can easily place so much pressure on a small section of the case that it deforms and can never be made to look good again.

Admiral pocket watch 7635522 . how old is it and its worth. its swiss, 16 jewels3 adjust ,14 kt gold by tacy watch co


Learn about your watch by following these links. Hope it halps. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6584638 Cyma was a company name under the Tavannes umbrella of watch co. names. Founded in 1891 by Henri Sandoz (1851-1913) after 20 yrs of success at the helm of his first company, Henri Sandoz and Cie., the Tavannes Watch Co. was known for many patents and new innovations including patents and contributions for repeaters (chiming watches), pocket chronometers (highly accurate pocket watches), marine chronometers (ships clocks), chronographs, extra thin movements, hermetic (waterproof) cases, metal dials, parts of all kinds and even their own shock protection devices. By the 1920's the Tavannes Watch Co., Tacy (short for Tavannes and Cyma) Watch Co. and Cyma Watch Co. were one of Switzerland's most productive and popular manufacturer's with offices in nearly every overseas market. http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=624 What it's worth- only the watchmaker can tell after inspection, as there are too many things to be connsidered (quality of movement and craftmenship, working order, looks, age, state of case, glass, crown, hinges, etc, etc)
