    Love my new vintage Gruen Veri-Thin. Needs new glass, any suggestions?

    The top of the crystal has chips/been grinded. How / where the best way to replace it?

    If it's just slightly chipped or pitted rather than cracked through, I would try some crystal polisher rather than replace the entire thing.

    Failing that, I'm sure you could find a new one in the G&S catalog.

    I own a couple Gruen's (Curvex, Veri Thin) now and I must say that they are probably one of the most underrated vintage dress watches out there. Must stock up much more before others catch on!!!!

    You can somewhat inexpensively have the crystal replaced by sending it to Murphy's Crystals in Ceres CA. They will fit the right glass (or plastic if you want) crystal to the case and install it for you. No research work required on your part other than finding their phone number to call them.
