    New glass for pocket watch.

    Hi Guys, I need some tips.

    I got that pocket watch from my grandfather who told me it comes from HIS grandfather.....!!!

    So about minimum 120 years old. Service has just been done (spring replacement) and it works perfectly.

    Would like to know if it is possible to replace the glass (it has been slightly polished but there is still a lot of scatches) and where can I get one ?

    I don't know the brand, it is mentioned inside "Remontoir Cylindre 10 rubis". must come from France I guess.

    Thanks, Phil.

    Go to a watchmaker and ask for a new glass. Then he cuts probably a glass. Maybe he can order one as well.

    Try here:
    POCKET WATCH GLASS CRYSTALS
    But you will need to know the size. A good watchmaker should be able to change crystal for you.
