Services
We exist to help with the problem of "where can I get my watch repaired". We know it's difficult to find a watchmaker on the staff of most jewelry stores. It's even more difficult to find one who can cut and set a watch crystal / lens / glass / face or repair a mechanical watch.

With over 40 years of experience in repairing and restoring watches, we can resolve your watch problems.

Whether you live in New York City or small town in Kansas, you can trust that we have the knowledge, skill and experience to make your timepiece look and perform its best. And better still, you'll like our prices because we don't do our work in a high overhead location.

Crystal Replacement

Crystal (also referred to as lens, glass or face) replacement is a deceptively difficult process. A properly fit crystal is a thing of beauty and enhances a watch tremendously. An improperly fit crystal is, at the least, unsightly and, at the most, an impairment to the function of the watch. At Crystal-Fit, we have over 40 years experience in this area. We are confident you will be amazed with what a new crystal can do for your watch.

Steps We Take When Replacing A Crystal

The replacement crystal selected is shown to illustrate the complexity of a "simple" crystal. Note not only is the required crystal domed, but the sides are arched as well.
