    New crystal for Bulova Accutron 2 Snorkel diver

    I really love the feel of this watch and it manages to creep onto my wrist about the most of all I have; comfortable.

    BUT one huge drawback is the crystal----mine seems smoky white, not transparent, when viewed at an angle.

    Anyone swap out the original part for sapphire, or at least something clear?

    Sounds like residue left on the inside of the case. It can be opened up and cleaned out fairly easily. I have cleaned many over the years.

    Thanks. I didn't know that could happen. What did you use to clean? isopropyl alcohol?

    I'm assuming this might be easy to do: open the back, slide out movement, clean inside crystal. . . is that the method?

    Pretty much. Open, remove stem, then movement. I use C44 lens cleaner and a kimtech lens paper and toothpicks to make mops both wet and dry. I clean it twice and blow it out. I get good results. Take your time and be thorough. Sometimes, the clarity will surprise you.

    Ho! Ho!

    This is one fix that REALLY worked! I undid the watch and cleaned the crystal and BINGO! It's like another watch entirely to me! Fantastic.
