    Question Help with Swiss Army!

    Can anyone help?
    Due to the quite bad scratches, (see pics) I want to change the bezel and crystal on this Swiss Army branded watch but i am having trouble finding anyone that sells this particular watch or spares.
    The case back has Swiss Army, Swiss Made, HC-8901.
    Any info on where i might get said spares would be much appreciated.
    Thanks Zak

    You mean the crystal not the bezel right? The bezel looks like it has a tachometer or something on it~Cheers!

    Good news and bad news. Bad news is that with Swiss Army you have a choice between Wenger and Victorinox. The watch you have does not match up with either of those brands. So you probably have some sort of monster watch that is trying to be something it is not. I see some ads on Google that has some sort of brand like that in Indonesia.

    Good news is that the crystal looks to be acrylic so you probably can get most of the scratches out with some Polywatch. Acrylic watch crystals are also very easy to replace. And watch repair outfit can fit you with a new one. But I hope that this watch has some sentimental value to you, because either of those options are probably going to cost you more than the watch is worth.

    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    The warranty should have contact information for the manufacturer and repair centers.

    No papers left as this watch is now about ten years old and the original box has been lost.
