    Glass on back has popped out... what to do next?

    So I made a dumb mistake and left my Orient watch in my car in direct sunlight and it heated up and caused the glass on the back of the watch to pop out. My watch model is FFD0F001B if it matters... any ideas on how to get this glass back in? I have tried to push it back in and that is not working. My next step is going to be a jeweler shop to see if they can get it in, but I dont know how much that is going to cost, so thought I'd check with you guys to see if you know an easy way to fix this on my own?

    Get a watchmaker to order a replacement case back. Shouldn't be too expensive. I don't think pushing the glass back in is going to maintain your waterproofness!

    Get a caseback without a glass.

    Duct tape. Scotch tape, if you still want the exhibition back.
