Super glue is some funky stuff.It works but I have found that occasionally it will get deposited by vapor,and that these can only be removed by acetone. Additionally sometimes the things you want to stick together don't and the things you don't want to stick together do.
Hi, I’m trying to replace the crystal on this expedition. I have pulled the stem and the movement. The crystal was shattered. It seems to be a 29.5mm crystal with a 1mm depth. I don’t see a gasket. How would I apply the new crystal? Does it press without a gasket?
Thank you for any help provided!
I have a little bottle of clear nail-varnish on my table which I use for sealing the edges of dials where the paint is flaking and also to re-stick hour markers. Just a dab on the marker and lower it into place. Alternatively you can re-install the marker dry and dab some thinned nail varnish on the back of the dial where the holes are. This is safer than applying glue on the marker as you risk marking the dial with glue if you don't get it right and it moves around.
