    I have a little watch from the forties that has an " Acme-Hyropel" case. The Plastic is completely shattered and I cannot find a replacement in the GS catalog. The crystal measures 24 by 22 and fits INSIDE the case against a gasketted back .... Does anyone have any ideas where i can buy one ? thks, charles e

    in 22x24, are these 90Ëš angle corners? Is this a rectangle? are there any curves anywhere? This was usually called an inverse crystal if my memory serves me correctly and can actually be pressed from perspex by pushing it from the inside of the actual case.
