A Unique Bulova Crystal Replacement

Published: December 7, 2013

First of all, apologies. I have a before picture of this watch, but I forgot to take an after picture – the customer already has the watch back

We replaced this wristwatch crystal. Sorry, we forgot the "after" picture.

. The Bulova Frank Lloyd 96L63 is one of the more unique Bulova watches I’ve seen in a while, due largely to the crystal used in the watch. Replacing these crystals is more an issue of availability than of difficulty.

After cleaning the old cement from the bezel with acetone, I used GS Cement to secure the crystal. I normally let cement dry for a few hours before doing anything else to the watch. I then take a pair of tweezers and press the underside of the crystal to make sure it is firmly glued into the watch.
