    I accidentally dropped my Orient Mako on to the Floor and it has fractured the crystal it isnt VERY bad but i do want it replacing any good places i cant send it to in the UK and what are the general prices for this Thanks guys.

    Here is a quick n dirty pic of the damage
    As a beater watch for work is it worth replacing the crystal also?

    Since you are getting no responses, I'll add something..... You can buy a sapphire replacement for your mineral crystal from yobokies [email protected] for about US$30 posted. It's not a major job to install. Maybe just ask the local watchmaker what he would charge if you supplied the crystal...

    I am surprised that the crystal on the watch fractured. I've dropped my watches several times over their lifetime and I've never as much as dinged the crystal. You must have hit the crystal on it's weakest point for that to happen. Replacing the crystal is a fairly simple job that can be performed by any watch maker. If you are daring enough you can take it upon yourself. A crystal replacement is fairly inexpensive,
