identifying a replacement crystal - help pls

Question

Hi all,

Embarrassing beginners’ problem.!

Whilst replacing the battery and using a press to fasten the back plate onto a watch, I have broken the crystal…(was rushing, will use concave piece properly next time!)

The watch is an Emporio Armani AR2041. 

My problem is I cannot find the correct part number/specification for the crystal on the internet anywhere, (and thus the dimensions and thickness etc,), or do I take the pieces and measure them,  to reorder from Cousins?

I assume it will be a mineral domed that is required?

 Any help would be appreciated,

many thanks

As there's no sweep seconds hand a flat glass should be ok, providing you have good clearance from the bottom of the bezel and across, if you thing its touch and go with the height of the hands then a low dome will be best Measure inside the bezel from 12 down to 6 or 9 across to 3 in mm and  order from your supplier. 

Don't you have any of the broken glass to see what it was like?

There is domed mineral crystals also. So a domed mineral crystal in the right size will do?

    • Hi, I'm working on a cal 30.10 at the moment which also has the original mainspring with separate slipping bridle. However, the conventional mainspring which sits inside looks fairly "set". The replacement at Cousins is a conventional automatic mainspring, ie. one piece including bridle. I'm not sure if I'd be best leaving the original, or going for the replacement option which is not as per original, bit at least not set, and probably unbreakable.
    • Hi   Forgot to say the only reason I've not removed the threaded ring is I have not currently got a small enough opener to remove it so will order one if it is replaceable.   Andy
    • SQAULE OCEAN DIVER WATCH   Hi everyone. I am in the process of looking for spares for a SQUALE watch. I was at work and a colleague heard I did watches as a hobby and pulled this watch out of his drawer and brought it in. I have never heard of the brand but after some research I have found out more about te brand. Very cool indeed.   I need to repair/ polish or replace the glass and relume the hands and service and replace the battery and strap on the watch. I have not yet opened the retainer that holds the glass in but after removing the bezel I was wondering if this is a domed glass with a tapered edge held in place with a tapered retention screw ring or is it indeed a specialised bit of glass that has a flat lip on the bottom that this retention ring sits on to seal it against a rubber seal. I assume it would be the latter given that the watch is rated to a 100 atmospheres.   Has anyone worked on these watches or replaced one of these watch glasses before? Any pictures? If it is a specialised form I can see me spending many an hour polishing out the scratches.   Many thanks in advance.   Andy
