    Services brand crystals

    If this is in the wrong place forgive me, there are so many forums I am lost before I start. I purchased an old Services branded watch a while ago and need to try changing the crystal as the old one fell out, anyone know what type they are and how they are fitted ?.

    Thanks for any help

    I had a Services watch when I was a teenager.

    They were a British company, but they branded or assembled watches rather than producing them. At different times the watches were made by Ruhla, Oris, Newmark, Smiths, and probably many more. They were affordable watches using low-cost parts from around the world.

    There's no telling what crystal your watch needs, but a watchmaker should be able to measure it up and order something similar.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Thanks for the reply, i want to do this myself, it was only cheap and so if I mess it up it wont kill me :). I love pulling things to bits and repairing them, usually Engines or other mechanical items and I get a kick out of making things run again.

    In fact god help me, I also purchased a old adana printer the other day too that is more rust than anything to repair !. NO I have no idea why I did it.
