Hi! I have been working on this beautiful Sandoz Submariner ref: 3933-D-77-2 in really nice condition. While servicing it however, I realised that the crystal was cracked and it broke shortly after. I have been searching for an Identical replacement but I simply cannot find one to save my life. It has this pretty big tension ring as well. I have found some generic rolex replacements which share the same outer diameter measurements but none come with a tension ring of course. I will be listing some crystals I have found and some measurements of the original crystal and ring. Is there anyone that can tell me whether I can fit the tension ring in these rolex replacements and use one of those. Or even better, where I can find an original replacement for the Sandoz. Sandoz original glass measurements: width - 30,3 mm, height - 6,1 mm. Tension ring width - 1,5 mm, tension ring height - 1,5 mm. Some replacements I found: https://www.ebay.com/itm/123793378821 https://www.ebay.com/itm/123300572660 https://www.ebay.com/itm/310348420078 http://www.classicwatchrepair.com/english/shop/rolex-1680-submariner-replacement-domed-plexi-crystal Any help would be extremely appreciated. I really would like to get this watch looking and working nicely. Best regards(:
Yesterday my Oris watch hit a tiled floor when the strap pin broke and the back crystal popped off. Being in a rush , I quickly pressed it back into position and left it for later investigation. Today the crystal seems to be fixed in position, but I have no experience of removing or replacing these. Was a simple press of the thumb strong enough to do the job? How can I check, other then testing with my thumb nail. Are these a simple pop on fixing? Many thanks.
