Hi,
I need to replace a convex dial-glass that has been smashed. The attached photos show the bezel. Is there a recommended procedure? Is there a source for thin dial-glass? Timesavers seem to stock glass that's thick and heavy.
Thanks,
Charles

Hi Charles-
The glass from timesavers is right for your bezel. Use a soldering iron to remove retainer and install glass. resolder retainer and your done!

Thanks Bob,
That's very clear, soft solder the retaining ring back in. I had the impression that the busted glass was much thinner than the replacement.
Thanks again,
Charles
