    No. But a new plastic crystal should be less than $10 and not a very big job to replace.

    A cracked crystal will destroy your dial by letting moisture in. As DB says, this is a cheap and easy job to have done - no dismantling is required.

    I will add, your watch will look so much better afterward - I am always pleased with how such a small thing makes such a big difference

    esslinger sells them for about $3 each you just need to know the size. you can buy the exact size and glue it in using gs hypo cement, or buy a crystal one size bigger( .2mm) and use a crystal lift tool to compress the crystal into the bezel. buying exact size crystal and using glue is the cheapest route. GS hypo cement glue =4.50 + gs high dome crystal =2.95 and shipping is about $4 if you are in the U.S.
