I just acquired a nice used 8926 with a very, very minor scratch on the crystal that I can live with, but a major scratched magnifier. I took some 000 grade steel wool to the maginifer and it is a little better. Then I had a jeweler polish the magnifier more. Still the scratches cloud the view. I shopped around to get the magnifer replaced and was told all around that it cant be done, the entire crystal must be replaced with the lowest price of $95. I do recall reading that the maginifers can be removed and replaced but do not recall the specifics. I live in BFE east texas and have called or visited all the jeweler and watch shops here. Can someone point me in the right direction to removed a magnifier and acquire a new one.
