Hi all, was going through a box of watch stuff and found this (forgot I bought it a few years ago) it looks like the crystal retaining ring/bezel was glued on at some stage and I was wondering where would I get a new retaining ring as I assume that it should be a press fit..?? It just falls off at the moment. Also it looks like there should be a gasket under the crystal..?? Can’t find anything on the internet about the retaining ring or gasket, any help to get this beautiful watch back in shape would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
John

Hello, I have one of these, although I've done nothing to it yet. I decided to go look at mine. The one I have also has a loose fitting crystal retaining ring. I see no indication of it ever having been glued. The crystal retaining ring does have a bevel, which points to press fit. I don't remember removing the crystal, so I have no recollection of how tightly it fit. But, I don't think these are glued and I don't believe there should be a gasket. I'll be interested to see what others have to say.

Hi, that’s great information, I’ll clean up the case with some acetone and hopefully the new one will pop on without any issues.
Thanks again.
