    A while ago I picked up this Hisonic 3701-370228TA. I've been interested in turning fork movements and this one grabbed my attention. I've been working on my refinishing and general restoration skills and this looked it had potential for a fun project. All I knew was it was running and obviously...

    EDIT: WARNING TLDR: seiko 7016-7000 are bezel fit crystal and not from pushed in crystal ! Here is an Ok video on how to fit such a crystal. Hi, I have recently bought a watch press, and used it to remove a watch crystal from an old seiko with a mineral crystal so I could clean the chapter...

Looking to determine the best course of action to get it fixed: Send to Rolex, wait X months and pay $Y Find a local independent who can source an aftermarket crystal Buy a crystal (if this...
  6. Casio G-Shock
    The GWM-B5000TC, the bare satin/polished titanium square with classic C colorway screen. It has remained mythical, confoundingly unproduced, seemingly off the design table, the stuff of Ti Full Metal fans dreams... So I've decided to mod my way to one, based on a B5000TR. I'll entirely...

    I want to replace the cracked crystal in my 38mm Max Bill with a new acrylic one (currently it’s a coated acrylic). Some old threads have mostly dead links to replacements. -Will I need a crystal ‘claw’ tool to get it off (I only have a press)? Are the cheap Chinese ones sufficient? -Does...

    Hi everyone, the title explains my issue pretty succinctly. I cracked a double domed mineral crystal while trying to put it back into the case with a screw-type crystal press. I've already ordered a new crystal of the same dimensions, but wanted to know exactly where I went wrong with the...
  9. Casio G-Shock
    I've always loved the screen on the B5000TFC (the Porter) because of the classic DW-5000C color scheme. So I found one and put it in my B5000D! I'm dubbing it the B5000TFD. I hadn't seen any pictures on this process or removed one of these modules so I got some pictures and I'll post them...
  10. TAG Heuer
    Hi Guys, Somehow I managed to scratch the crystal - maybe the AR - on my Carrera. Do you have any tips where I could order a replacement preferably in the EU? Having it changed in the authorized service center is a bit too expensive. Alternatively do you know where I could find the exact...
  11. Watchmaking
    Hi guys. As the title suggests, what's needed to remove scratches? I've accumulated a few Seikos with scratches I want to fix It doesn't have to be perfect; I'm not gonna spend 3-12 hours going through 10 types of sandpaper, as some other threads suggest, I don't have that kind of...

    Yep it happened, dropped my lovely nivada chronomaster and shattered the crystal. Can a local watchmaket repair this or should it be sent to Nivada? Does someone know the crystal size?

  15. Rolex & Tudor
    I took my Tudor GMT (79830rb) off this morning but when I wanted to put it back, it slipped out of my hand and smashed the crystal on the tile floor. Would not mind replacing it with one that has a lower dome now that I don't have a choice in the matter. Does anyone know where I could find a...

    Before someone says that there was already discussion about this a billion years ago:) - I figure that, I just could find anything with the search function. I’m looking for the seal sourcing, tool(press, etc), and tips and tricks. Even just a WUS link would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance...
