Glasses (aftermarket and occasionally new old stock) are available and the same with the sub dial hand.
It's incredibly unlikely any has gone inside the movement and affecting it. It would have to go inside the holes (hard) and then past the date work / main plate and into where the wheels are (almost impossible).

Thanks for the info,

I meant the broken glass was affecting the dial movement.

Would it be costly to get set by professional

I want to get all the glass off first, but it's stuck for some reason

Yes costly. Probably around £150-250

Nice watch. There are a lot of members here that could turn that watch into a fine timepiece. I would say at least $150 probably more, but when you consider what it is and what it's actually worth even in that condition, it's kind of a no brainier. Get that watch serviced and enjoy it. I have the exact same watch and it's one of my favorites. Looks good on just about any strap/bracelet you put it on. Congratulations on that killer find (for a fraction of what it's worth).

Thanks for the info Dwk

I've just gone and snapped the second hand off now trying to straighten it out ! Doh

I'll probably try and sell it on as is. Hopefully someone will be interested in it for parts etc

Hopefully its only the second hand you snapped off, and not the wheel where its connected to.

Well that is a shame that not only the glass was ruined now the second hand too
Better to sell it as is before it is damaged any more
These are very nice watches
It is better if you don't know how to work on a watch to watch videos or find someone who can help
You can lose money fast and ruin things if you don't know what u are doing
God Bless,John
This is one model I have yet to own
Always liked the looks of them too
Also to your foolish friend who ruined the glass he deserves to pay for it ..

Probably a bit late, but give your friend a sharp slap around the head. :giggle:

I would have handed the watch to them and said you bought it
And said this to them
Pay me my money
God Bless,John
And not the price I paid for it
Fair market value

Chuck it my way, I'll provide the address.;)
But really, stop fiddling with it and post it if you do t want it. Still worth a lot more than you paid as a parts watch. FYI I needed a second hand for mine, so that sucks.

I feel like chucking it now, just so I can stop thinking about it !
Why would u throw it away
If you no longer want it
I am sure one of us would buy it from you and let someone else try and save it
But stop trying to work on it unless u know what u are doing
God Bless,John
