Do not do that! Open your watch's caseback, then pull out the crown with stem and the movement will come out with the dial fitted on it.
Do not force the stem out - there is the special point (usually marked with an arrow) where to push to get the stem out.
If you gonna try to get the glass out you will brake it or will not be able to fit it back. Definetely.

Rate, please.

The gold trim box around the day/date feature of my Seiko 5 SNZH57 has come out. It now slides around under the crystal, and the hands catch on it. can I remove the crystal? Can it be replaced so it does...


You will need to remove the back of your watch and the movement to do this, don't remove the crystal... I usually just take the surround out but it can be glued back in place. Being a divers watch its best to get it done professionally so it can be resealed to ensure its water proof

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

Crack across the crystal on my skagen how much would it cost to fix from an expert, and how much would it cost just to buy the new crystal piece?


Here in U.K. fitted crystal would cost you £15-£20. Crystal only you can find on ebay for as low as £1-£3, but you need to know exact size.

If one of the hands have fallen off the face of the watch. can it be repaired by taken the back off or the crystal face? If the crystal face can be removed what is the proper way to remove the crystal


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Hands are fixed through the back of a watch but due to the delicate nature and complication of this type of repair, it needs to go to a watch repair service tech.
Best regards. Jewel

The crystal is broken. I dropped on a tile floor and it broke. However, the watch repair shop advised me they can not fix the broken crystal. I was wondering if I can order a new crystal.


Thank you for contacting FIxYa.
You should be able to have any local watchmaker fix the crystal. It is a very simple procedure but if you cant find a local, here is a suggestion:

One of the hourer marker as come loose from the face and is wedged between the watch face and the crystal.


In order to fix this problem you will have remove the case back and movement and re-locate the marker back to the correct location. It probably came loose because it was not tight enough on the the shaft. So some tightening will be required. All of this is maybe something that you do not have the expertise to do and therefore you may need a watch repair person to do this. Best of luck.
