Hello, my daughter gave me a SEIKO TN43-8119 men's two tone watch from Ebay.

I like this watch except the crystal is really bad(beat up by a Bear). I am looking to replace it if not too expensive.

Really appreciate any information.

Regards,

Stephen

This is an easy job when it's done in any true watch repair shop (not one of those shopping mall kiosks).
My watch guy charges $50 plus the cost of the crystal ($8-$40 depending on who the vendor is).

*You might also need the proper tool for removing the old, dried-on crystal cement

and

*Crystal cement- be sure to get the right kind. Not all acrylic cements work with sapphire or glass, and not all glass cements work well on plastic.

*Applicator for the cement- the cement may or may not have its own applicator.

Be careful not to use too little cement or the crystal won't stay in place.
Be careful not to use too much or the dial will be ruined....then you'll have to get a replacement dial! At the very least, the job will look like hell.
