    Default Need Info on a crystal for Elgin 16s 293 7J Pocket Watch

    Have an Elgin Pocket Watch missing a crystal. Does anyone have any idea what I need to be looking for/order for a replacement crystal? I don't trust my measurements and am not sure if crystal is curved and how thick. Thanks.

    You need to know the diameter, principally in MM, the height to clear the hands, open or hunter to determine the thickness. It is easiest when the watch is in hand to measure the diameter and then determine the height. A hunter crystal in an open face case is an invitation to disaster, easily broken. How about some pictures of the case and bezel.

    Hi Edward:

    Welcome to the NAWCC American Pocket Watch Message Board!

    Perhaps the Crystal Replacement Encyclopedia article will be helpful.

    Good luck,
