Would anyone know a place to send a watch bezel to have the crystal replaced, I have a lot of old watches from the 20's and 30's with with 4 curved sides or 2 straight and 2 curve. And I can search my limited crystal supply and still never come up with the right one. I have sent them out to crystal fit USA but there kind of expensive, would appreciate any feed back , thanks.

You could try Jules Borel, Wm. S. McCaw, and Kirk Dial of Georgia among others. I don't have access to my references at the moment, but I think that a simple Google search should turn up contact info for all three.

Burnz,

I've only rarely used Kirk for crystals (I prefer McCaw) but they do offer the service. I do use them fairly regularly for dials, even though they are a bit more pricey than some of their competitors.

They shut down for a couple of weeks for vacation sometime soon. A phone call should get you a price list and a supply of envelopes.

Cary,
